Michele Gerard Good was born in Chicago and raised in northern Wisconsin. After graduating from Ripon College with a degree in theatre, she spent the first part of her life pursuing an acting career – studying “the Method” at The Actor’s Studio in London, voice with Marni Nixon in New York and improv at The Second City in Chicago. She has also directed, taught acting, and adapted several plays for stage production, including a collaboration with Tony award-winning playwright Willy Russell on an African-American adaptation of “Educating Rita”. She continues to perform regularly.
A self-proclaimed public radio addict, Michele decided to parlay her hours upon hours of listening pleasure into a career by becoming a weekend announcer for Wisconsin Public Radio. Since then, she has worked with the Audience Services Team, been a Marketing Assistant, was Show Manager for Michael Feldman’s “Whad’Ya Know?” and even filled in for Jim Packard as Michael’s sidekick a time or two before finding her home as Host, Executive Producer, and Technical Director for “Chapter A Day”.
