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.

2012 a Record Year for Digital Downloads and Vinyl
SoundScan has released it's 2012 report, and it was another good year for Adele's "21." It was the best selling album for the second year in a row and the first to do that since 1983 and 1984 with Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Digital music buying was up with a record 1.34 billion tracks sold. Number one on that list was Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know." It was also a record year for vinyl with 4.6 million vinyl albums sold. That's the most in SoundScan history.
Glenn Beck Claims He Tried to Buy Al Gore's TV Network
And the story just keeps getting more and more interesting. Wednesday it was announced that Al Jazeera had purchased the Current TV network from Al Gore and his business partners. Then the "Wall Street Journal" reported conservative talk show host Glenn Beck tried to buy the network last year. The paper says the offer was rejected because of their different viewpoints. Beck says Gore's choice of Al Jazeera over him "tells you that he is more ideologically aligned with Al Jazeera than an American broadcaster who believes in America."
Dying Fan Gets Advance Screening of "Star Trek: Into Darkness"
"Star Trek: Into Darkness" was supposed to be out in 2012, but it got pushed back to May of this year. Unfortunately for one fan diagnosed with a non-treatable form of cancer that wasn't going to work. So Dan's friends posted his story online trying to get him an advance screening of the film. Director J.J. Abrams made the dream come true. Dan's wife posted some comments about the experience saying, "It was truly amazing that a filmmaker so secretive as J.J. Abrams was kind enough to show this to us. It is also so wonderful for his friends & his family to finally hear some good news from us, they know how important film is to Daniel & could not think of a better way to please him. So this gesture has brought a lot of smiles all around.
A "Three Men & A Baby" Sequel? Really?
I admit it, I love "Three Men & a Baby." If it's on, I usually watch it. Wouldn't it be great to get Tom Selleck, Ted Danson, and Steve Guttenberg back together again? It just might happen. Selleck talked about it on "The Talk" Thursday. He said he'd spoken with Danson and Guttenberg and said, "We'd love to get back together if they've got a good idea." A Disney spokesman said the project is in early development. While we're waiting, here's a clip from the original film.
