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 March 11, 2011
Charlie Sheen Gets A Visit From The Police Cops visited Charlie Sheen's home last night after police received a call that he was threatening to hurt himself with a firearm, TMZ reports. Posessing firearms would be a violation of his restraining order with his estranged wife, Brooke Mueller. The visit didn't seem to phase Sheen as he tweeted following their visit, "the LAPD were AWESOME, Absolute pros! they can protect and serve this Warlock anytime!!!"
Also yesterday Sheen filed a $100-million lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre, producer of "Two and a Half Men."
