Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers June 22, 2008




Lansing State Journal:

I'll remember Jerry Marshall for hosting a morning radio program on WFMK years ago that arguably was the most popular in mid-Michigan history. But more MSU fans will perhaps recall years of his mellow voice serving as the public address announcer for Spartan home hockey and baseball games. Marshall died Saturday in a local hospice care facility after being cut down by a massive stroke last October. He was 64. It saddened various MSU coaches who visited him and then departed figuring he likely would never recover. He never did regain his speech. Jerry battled congestive heart failure along the way, too much for doctors to fix... Marshall's legacy deep at MSU, in Lansing (Sun, 6/22)



Saginaw News:

Joe Nichols was awestruck when he showed up Saturday at the KCQ Country Music Fest and found some 75,000 fans waiting for him at Ojibway Island. "Through hot and cold and rainy, they're right there beside you, all the way," said the country crooner, though he had to admit you usually don't get all three climate changes in the same day... KCQ Country Music Fest livens up Ojibway island with Tracy Lawrence and Joe Nichols (Sat, 6/21)
