Last month People magazine announced their "Sexiest Man Alive;" we thought we'd put our own spin on it and Rockford had it's first and very own "Sexiest Man Alive," Miles Neilsen.

Well, we had so much fun with it that, that we thought we'd also like to celebrate Time's "Person of the Year," which is set to be announced on December 6th, with, you guessed it, Rockford's "Person of the Year."

Time defines "Person of the Year" as a "person (or people) who has had the most influence over the news in the last 12 months."

Who do you think it should be?

Here's a list we put together to get you started. If there's someone you think should be on it, let us know who and why.

Officer Jaimie Cox

Police Chieif Dan O'Shea

Mayor Tom McNamara

Fred VanVleet

Dean Lowry, Green Bay Packers

Sheriff Gary Caruana

Frank Sheer

Jim McIlroy, Owner of Food 4 Fuel

Annetta McBain, Make up artist and owner of Annetta Michelle Cosmetics

We'll be accepting nominations between now and December 3rd with voting starting on the 4th.
