 “We are thrilled to have Lori join our Grand Rapids team” says VP/MM Jeff Cartwright.  She is a true broadcast professional who brings a positive energy along with new programming ideas to our cluster. I am excited to see what the future holds for our 5 stations with Lori here.   Bennett says “I’m honored to join the remarkable family of broadcasters at Cumulus Grand Rapids!  The talent and energy within the cluster extends beyond the norm, with legendary market personalities that know how to truly connect and super serve the West Michigan audience. I am grateful to Mary Berner, Mike McVay, Doug Hamand, Bob Walker and of course, the dynamic Jeff Cartwright, for the opportunity to captain such an incredible team!”
