West Michigan: Newsmakers May 8, 2007




Grand Rapids Press:

Tim Keisling is program director at MAX-FM (96.1.) In addition, he is mid-afternoon talent and program director at WOOD-FM and also does an on-air shift from midnight to 6 a.m on MAX. Does the guy ever sleep? In charge at MAX since March, Keisling has made some noticeable changes. Disc jockeys are back on the air... Changes at MAX (Tue, 5/8)

Morning on-air personalities Steve and Sabrina and the rest of the staff at WOOD-FM (Star 105.7) raised more than $188,000 for DeVos Children's Hospital during The Children's Miracle Network Radiothon, a significant increase from last year's $151,000. All the money pledged stays in West Michigan for children's services and programs. Speaking of Sabrina, she and Maranda from WOTV (Channel 4) host "In Tune," a one-hour contemporary Christian music show from 7 to 8 a.m. Sundays... WOOD-FM helps hospital (Tue, 5/8)

Think comfort food. Think bacon and eggs, rich whipping cream, meats marinated in butter, barbecue, stuffing and seafood gumbo. Now, think popular radio morning man Kevin Matthews from WLAV-FM (96.9.) Who would have thought Kev is an author of a cookbook -- and is writing another? "In 2001, I wrote and printed my first cookbook," Matthews said. "It is called 'This Book Could Kill You -- Recipes to Die For.' Well, to say the least, it did very well and sold out in one year. ... I said 'yes, let's reprint it' and it is on sale right now in all Meijer stores here in Michigan and coming soon, if not now, in Chicago"... Cooking with Kev (Tue, 5/8)

Muskegon Chronicle:

Judging by the words of Will Tieman, loyal listeners of Grand Haven radio station WGHN (92.1 FM, 1370 AM) can expect broadcast as usual. "We don't have any major changes in mind," said Tieman, who is in the process of buying WGHN from its local longtime owners, William J. Struyk and Ronald Mass. "We're a Grand Haven radio station, and there's no reason to think we would be anything other than that. That's what we want to be. We want to be that station for that city." Struyk and Mass, who have run WGHN since 1983, announced May 1 that they were selling the station to Tieman... New owner plans to keep WGHN local (Tue, 5/8)
