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 June 3, 2011
Bono Was Hitchhiking?
This is just plain strange. Gilbert Brule of the Edmonton Oilers was driving down the road with his girlfriend in West Vancouver when they drive by a couple of hitchhikers. Brule convinced his girlfriend to turn around and pick up the hitchhikers, and it turned out it was U2's Bono and his assistant. "The Edmonton Journal" says Bono gave the couple backstage passes for U2's show Wednesday night in Edmonton and even mentioned them on stage.
"The Voice" Adds Episodes Ratings are good for "The Voice," so their adding more shows.

Live rounds of the show begin next week, and it was announced earlier this week that "The Voice" will air after the Super Bowl February 5th.
