Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers Oct 19, 2007




Flint Journal:

If you listen to "Mike and Stephanie in the AM" on CK 105, you've probably noticed that they haven't been in the studio much on Fridays. The WWCK-FM (105.5) morning team of Mike MacDonald and Stephanie K have been hitting the road; a haunted house here, the Holiday Inn Gateway Center (where they planned to be this morning) there. MacDonald insists it's not just a ratings ploy, though local radio stations have ramped up the contests and community activities lately because they are in the fall ratings campaign. "I just like to get out of the studio," he told me during former "American Idol" singer Elliott Yamin's show Saturday at the Machine Shop. Why? "I don't like to be in the studio," he said. "I like to get out and meet our listeners." The show airs from 5-9 a.m. weekdays and will continue to broadcast live from various locations on Fridays for the foreseeable future ... A team with some pretty impressive credentials has produced the new documentary "Where Do the Children Play?," which examines the recreational activities of children in urban, suburban and rural settings in this part of the state. It debuts at 9 p.m. Tuesday on WFUM (Channel 28)... Radio team enjoys life on the road; PBS looks at child's play (Fri, 10/19)
