The first time she stepped onto the set, Jessica Camacho stammered, slipped off her stool and stared at the TV cameras with a shell-shocked, deer-in-the-headlights look. That wasn't a problem for the cast and crew of "Come On Over!" That's what the script called for. By the time the episode was filmed, everyone knew she loves flowers, does animal noises and has "a great desire to build a replica of the Eiffel Tower out of toothpicks." Camacho, as a shy girl named Joy, joined the cast of "Come On Over!" as the locally produced children's TV show, which debuted last October, began taping episodes for its second season on WOTV-TV (Channel 41)... 'Come On Over!' builds momentum (Sun, 8/5)

When you tune in to WHTS-FM (105.3) at night, expect to hear -- "It's all Gravy, Baby!" That's what the new voice to the night airwaves says to West Michigan listeners. His real name is Kevin Canup, but now he simply goes by the name of "Gravy." He signed on for his first night shift at Hot FM on Monday. His program, which airs 6-11 p.m. weeknights , will feature new music, a countdown of top hits and a focus on engaging the listener... HOT FM has new night DJ (Sun, 8/5)
