After 15 years, we're down to the last week. July 12, 2013 will be the last show for John & Michele in the Morning. There's nothing scandalous to report...sorry!
John will continue his reign as Springfield's morning show king, but he'll just be doing it with someone new.
Michele is moving on to a new phase of her career in the radio business. She'll still be in Springfield and still with Neuhoff Media, however instead of being on the air she's going to be focusing on all things digital. It's been a great 15 years, and John & Michele plan to spend this last week reminiscing with guests and playing some of the best moments of the past.
Michele would LOVE to hear from you this week. Write on the John & Michele Facebook page, email her, or tweet.

Of the three 24-hour news networks, MSNBC was the only one to get it right the first time.

William Shatner Pantless at the Airport!
Oh how embarrassing! Williams Shatner was at the Los Angeles airport and was singled out by the TSA. Unfortunately the 81-year-old was wearing some comfortable loose clothing. A litte too loose, in fact, because Shatner's pants fell to his ankles as dozens watched. He said, "It's probably the most embarrasing thing that's ever happened to me."
