West Michigan: Newsmakers Dec 28, 2007




Grand Haven Tribune:

If you heard someone talking about free beer and hot wings, you'd likely think they were headed to happy hour at the local bar. But when folks around West Michigan mention free beer and hot wings, they're more likely talking about the most popular morning radio show in the market: "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show" on WGRD-FM (97.9). But just how the hosts of the hit show came up with its name is a story more of chance than intention. Gregg "Free Beer" Daniels and Chris "Hot Wings" Michels, college roommates at Central Michigan University, decided to use the personality names as a way to promote their show when they first started in broadcasting at Omaha's 89.7, The River seven years ago... 'Free Beer & Hot Wings' climbs ratings (Thu, 12/27)

Grand Rapids Press:

There might not be a radio station better suited to auto racing than WLAW-FM (92.5), "The Outlaw." At least that's what Berlin Raceway president Scott Lane thinks. "Just check out their logo," Lane said. "It looks like a big old belt buckle." The Citadel-owned "The Outlaw" recently was tabbed to broadcast the 2008 Berlin Raceway season, replacing WMUS-FM (106.9). According to a news release, remaining on a FM signal that's able to reach a wide audience was a major factor in making the radio switch... Berlin finds new home on radio (Fri, 12/28)
