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.

Judges Use Their Save on "Idol"
It was a strange night on "American Idol" last night when arguably the three best contestants ended up in the bottom three and in danger of going home. Then there was utter shock when Jessica Sanchez, a favorite throughout the season, was named as the lowest vote-getter. Sanchez didn't even finish her song before the judges ran on stage to tell her she wouldn't be going home because they were going to use their one "save" of the season to bring her back next week.
