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.
"Soul Train" Host Dead
Remember "Soul Train?" It was on after "American Bandstand" on Saturday mornings, and definitely had its own style: gold lame body suits, big afros, and platform shoes. The host of the show, Don Cornelius, has died in an apparent suicide. He was 75 years old. Cornelius was discovered when he was working as a Chicago police officer. Cornelius pulled over a radio personality named Ed Cobb, and Cobb was so impressed with his voice he invited him to his station. From there Cornelius made a demo tape and got hired as a radio announcer.
