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.

American Idol Shocker It's the biggest elimination shocker since Chris Daughtry was voted off the show. Last night on American Idol Pia Toscano was eliminated after being considered a front runner to win. There was booing and howling in the studio after Ryan Seacrest announced Pia would be going home while Stefano Langone would be staying.
More Jersey Shore, In Case You Haven't Had Enough I'm sorry to say that three Jersey Shore cast members are getting spin-off shows. One will pair J-Woww and Snooki as roommates and another will feature Pauly D. You'll have to wait until 2012 to see them.
Is American Wising Up? Okay, I admit it. I don't get the whole "Real Housewives" thing, so sue me. But apparently I'm not the only one, because "The Real Houswives of Washington D. C." has been cancelled after just one season. Of course there's still Orange County, New York, Atlanta, Beverly Hills, Miami, and New Jersey. But hey, it's a start!
New Reality Show Lets Contestants Win Back Reposessed Cars It's called "Repo Games," and it's coming to Spike TV.
