A huge "thank-you" to Jeriann Ritter of TV13 for filling in for Van Harden this morning! Jeriann's husband woke up this morning at 6AM, noticed she wasn't on TV13 and she wasn't home and started to pannick! He called Jeriann on her cell phone to ask if she was okay and where was she? Jeriann had to remind him she was doing WHO Radio today! Jeriann has two handsome young boys, 2 and 4, and we found out today that she is planning on running in the Des Moines Marathon in October! She is in training at this time. She has a little further to go though, she's up to 13 miles and a marathon is 26 miles. Good luck Jeriann!
Kelly Foss of the Downtown Des Moines Farmers Market joined us this morning just after the 8:30 news. August and September are the pinnacle of the harvest season and you'll find lots of great produce this Saturday! Cheryl Pannier will be there after 9AM this Saturday, handing out autographed playing cards. Be sure to get one and then listen to WHO at 7:10AM on Monday. If I call out your card, you'll have 10 minutes, 40 seconds to call and claim your prize of a $25.00 gift card to the Iowa Machine Shed Restaurant! Also, next Wednesday over the noon hour, the weekday farmers market gets underwaay on 13th Street downtown. This will run for the next 6 weeks!
Tomorrow morning, Josh Martinez of KISS 107.5, will join me in the studio from 5-9AM. Josh is from New York City and knows nothing about agriculture or Iowa. Josh is going to get a very fun education tomorrow morning, including some visits by farm animals. Tune in for all the fun....video will be available as well on our Facebook page starting at 6AM.
