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.

Kevin Costner Prevails in Lawsuit
It was good news for actor Kevin Costner and bad news for actor Stephen Baldwin in court. Baldwin filed a lawsuit against Costner saying Costner cheated him out of a chance to earn millions in a deal to sell devices to clean up the BP oil spill in 2010. Baldwin says Costner and his business partner failed to tell him about the BP deal before Baldwin sold his shares in the company. The jury ruled in favor of Costner.
