Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers Oct. 11, 2010




Central Michigan Life:

Familiar faces are taking over the radio waves this weekend. Alumni will seize control of 91.5 WMHW during Central Michigan University's Homecoming starting at 12:01 a.m. on Friday and ending at Midnight on Saturday, said Bill Thompson, takeover coordinator and audio news editor for Michigan radio network. "It's our first year doing 48 hours straight," Thompson said. This will be the 11th year experts from across the country have descended upon the station to take over its operations. This year there are about 25 alumni coming back to do the takeover. Broadcast and Cinematic Arts instructor Trey Stohlman will come back for his third takeover. "I think it is important for alumni to come back and share their stories and support from the industry with the new generation of students heading into the industry in the next couple of years," Stohlman said. The tradition started in 2000 when Thompson and other alumni had the idea to come back and take over the station. Thompson said since then, the Alumni Association has become involved to help organize the event... 91.5 WMHW to be taken over by alumni for 11th year this Homecoming weekend (Mon, 10/11)
