This week, the Wisconsin Department of Tourism released its new summer advertising campaign showcasing Wisconsin’s seasonal festivals and spotlighting Green Bay Packers and "Dancing with the Stars" champion, Donald Driver. Thus, Driver's smiling face will appear in myriad pro-Wisconsin media efforts.
"Wisconsin has a fun-filled festival for everyone, and we are grateful for our partnership with Donald Driver in promoting that fun," said Tourism Secretary-designee Sara Meaney. "Driver’s infectious energy and depictions of Wisconsin’s wacky and fun festivals will help drive travelers into communities throughout Wisconsin."
This is also good news for OnMilwaukee as we are partnering with the Wisconsin Department of Tourism to provide great summer content and the most comprehensive festival guide in the city. And because we love Donald Driver.
Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
