Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Aug 10, 2008




Detroit Free Press:

Michael Collins has had a radio and TV career where he has bounced around: morning man on WRIF-FM (101.1) in the 1970s, stints at WXYT-AM (1270) and occasional weekends at WWJ-AM (950). On the TV side, he worked at WJBK-TV (Channel 2) in the '90s and toiled in communications for Ford. Now, he's knee-deep producing a 90-minute special for Detroit Public Television (WTVS-TV, Channel 56), putting together the ultimate reminiscence of Detroit television from the 1950s, '60s and '70s. That's before satellite transmission technology largely put an end to much locally produced daily and weekend production... Soupy, Sonny and more (Sun, 8/10)



Port Huron Times Herald:

Sometimes, legends walk nearly unnoticed among us. On Nov. 10, in Toronto, the National Hockey League will induct St. Clair resident Mike "Doc" Emrick into the writer/broadcaster division of the NHL Hall of Fame. Through the years, Emrick compiled a long list of honors and awards -- and a legion of friends in the sports world any fan would envy... No doubt about it: Emrick should be in Hall of Fame (Fri, 8/8)



Ann Arbor News:
