Grace Boyles was born and raised in Traverse City, Michigan, the “Cherry Capitol of the World”. She graduated with honors from the University of Michigan with dual majors, earning degrees in Communications and Creative Writing. During her time at Michigan, Grace broadcasted countless sporting events for the Big Ten Network, from baseball to men’s and women’s basketball to wrestling. Grace’s favorite sport to cover, however, was Michigan football from the sidelines at the Big House— even when it was 25 degrees and snowing! Grace is excited and eager to explore the Gulf Coast, meet new people, and learn more about this incredible community while telling the area’s news and sports stories.
