Metro Detroit: Newsmakers May 10, 2007




Detroit News:

General Motors vice chairman Bob Lutz will be a special guest on a live taping of "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!," the irreverent National Public Radio quiz show, next Thursday, May 17, at Ann Arbor's Michigan Theater. Lutz will appear as the show's "Not My Job" contestant, for which he'll answer questions outside his area of expertise (and maybe win a prize for a listener). The show will air nationally on the following Saturday. Locally it can be heard at 11 a.m. Saturdays on WEMU and WDET; it repeats on WDET Sunday evenings at 9 p.m, and airs on Michigan Radio WUOM-FM (91.7) Saturdays at noon...

But they said the mayor's stay at the La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, Calif., was part of an effort to raise money for the Kilpatrick Civic Fund, which the mayor created to boost community life in Detroit... $8,605 went toward Kilpatrick family’s bill at resort (Thu, 5/10)

(Originally published May 20, 2005) The most combative journalist in Detroit walked away from his latest confrontation with the mayor Tuesday disheveled and seething. He'd just been cursed, shoved, grabbed, kicked and punched. His dress shirt was untucked, his hair was a mess. Sweat dripped down his forehead. It was inevitable, really, that the melee would break out - the only question was when and how forcefully the whole thing would explode... Newsman Steve Wilson: Bulldog or Bulldozer? (Thu, 5/10)

WYCD catches a star- Country megastar Tim McGraw dropped by Detroit's WYCD-FM (99.5) the other day to bang the drum for Halfway to Hazard, a new country band he's producing. McGraw played with the band on several live tunes and spent a good hour on the air... Names and Faces (Thu, 5/10)
