Michigan is the iron state. It sure is. Just north of Grand Rapids is Big Rapids, home of Ferris State University, ferris meaning iron, of course, and the name being a tip to the iron part of their history. There’s even an iron museum in the Upper Peninsula, or the UP are it is known,where the Marquette Range is to be found. Your history lesson today is being brought to you by JON FLIS, the brand new Marketing Director of Tegna’s WZZM in Grand Rapids in the iron state. Jon has been learning the craft and honing his promo chops ‘across the street’ at the Fox affiliate in GR, and his move will see him head up the ABC affil – his first chance to call the shots. VERY exciting. He knows the market so he’s already ahead of the game. His sheepskin is from Grand Valley State U. Well Dunne! Jon.
