West Michigan: Newsmakers Sep 30, 2007




Grand Rapids Press:

What does last week's announcement of a $19.5 billion buyout by Thomas H. Lee Partners and Bain Capital Partners mean to programmers for local Clear Channel stations? The radio giant owns WBCT-FM, WMAX-FM, WOOD-AM, WTKG-AM, WSNX-FM, WBFX-FM and WOOD-FM in West Michigan. Bart Brandmiller, Clear Channel acting general manager and sales manager for Grand Rapids, responded to the news: "The sale ... is nothing more than a financial strategy to take the company private"... Buyout a 'financial strategy' (Sun, 9/30)

Local radio, TV and print journalists take students on job shadowing experiences all the time. Some are more accommodating than others. And news anchor Suzanne Geha of WOOD-TV (Channel 8) just might take the cake. Students consistently job-shadow her, and she takes a great deal of time explaining the broadcasting industry to them. Geha takes a personal interest in college interns and helps them with their careers... Geha goes extra mile (Sun, 9/30)
