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 August 12, 2011
Once And For All, Bert & Ernie Are Not Gay How sad is it that "Sesame Street" has to address this? Currently there is a Facebook petition circulating to encourage "Sesame Street" characters Bert & Ernie to marry on the show. In response, "Sesame Street" has posted a statement, "Bert and Ernie are best friends. They were created to teach pre-schoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves. Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics...they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation."
"iCarly" Star Injured in Tour Bus Crash She's okay, but Miranda Cosgrove has cancelled her tour until further notice after breaking her ankle in a tour bus crash Thursday. The crash happend just outside of Vandalia, Illinois. Five people were on the bus, but everyone will be fine.
And We Have ANOTHER Remake "Hawaii Five-O," "Charlie's Angels," Footloose," "Dirty Dancing," "Bewitched." Is seems like there is no end to the movies and TV shows Hollywood will remake. Now add "The Munsters" to that list. NBC is developing an "edgier, darker" verision of the sow.
"Bridget Jones" Will Be Back, So Will "True Blood" It's been 10 years since Bridget Jones first hit the screen starring Renee Zellweger. The sequel came out in 2004, and it looks like there will be a third film in the series according to "Entertainment Weekly."
No suprise that "True Blood" will have another season. HBO has renewed the show for a fifth. It will begin production later this year to air in summer of 2012.
