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.

The E Buzz for April 15, 2011 Stefano Makes It Out of the Bottom Two Again How is Stefano still on "American Idol?" I ask myself that every week, and this week was no exception. It came down to a bottom three of Haley, Paul, and Stefano last night on "Idol". Haley was sent to safety, and ultimately it was Paul who went home. Jason Aldean made his first appearance on the show with Kelly Clarkson.
Warner Bros. Denies Talks With Charlie Sheen Charlie Sheen says he's been in talks to come back to "Two and a Half Men," but according to Warner Bros., that's not the case. In fact the letter says there have been no discussions and there will be no discussions regarding Charlie's "returning to or having any involvement with the series."
Bye-Bye Erica Kane Better get your fill of "All My Children" and "One LIfe to Live" now. They won't be around for long. ABC has is eliminating both shows due to the "changing viewing patterns of the audience." "One Live to Live" will end in January while "All My Children" will end in September. They each been on more than 40 years.
Osbournes Pay Their Tax Bill Yesterday the story broke that Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne owed $1.7-million in taxes. Today those taxes have been paid. Sharon had this to say, "At 4pm on Friday afternoon I received a phone call from my publicist who had a reported on the other line informing her that the IRS had just put a lien on one of our properties. I then contacted by accountant who said they knew nothing about any lien. The lien has [now] been paid. I do intend to find out how this lien happened without the knowledge of myself of my accountants. I hope none of this reflects negatively on mine and Ozzy's moral character."
