Nine years ago, a veteran journalist who possessed deep connections with community members at every level joined us as WMUK's local Morning Edition Host. Earlene McMichael was also a regular contributor to the Station’s previously-run WestSouthwest and Arts & More programs. Earlene had been an editor, reporter and columnist for many years at the Kalamazoo Gazette newspaper, where she founded a longtime journalism training program for high-school and college students. She was a radio newsanchor in college. Now, sadly, we must say good-bye!
