Meet Midday Michelle, she grew up in Schaumburg and landed here in Rockford in 2013… BEFORE I-90 raised the speed limit to 70mph. Trips home are much speedier these days, which is good because when Michelle isn’t working at 97ZOK, or hosting Good Day Stateline on FOX39, she likes to spend as much time as possible with her seven nieces and nephews. She’s also a children’s book author, an avid wine drinker and a realistic Chicago sports fan.
