West Michigan: Newsmakers Dec. 10, 2010




Grand Rapids Press:

WBCT-FM (93.7) B-93 radio personality Dave Conrad is getting the ultimate gift this holiday season - a new kidney. The taped announcement was to be aired this morning at 7:15 as Conrad continues to undergo morning dialysis treatments as he has for two-and-a-half years. "My family's really excited. It's a lot of time I miss with my kids. To actually be able to go on vacations will be nice," Conrad said Thursday morning of his wife, Susan, and two boys: 15-year-old Harry and 13-year-old Ben. Conrad received an unexpected call Wednesday, while on air from 2 to 7 p.m., that he would be receiving a kidney from "a young woman from Grandville," he said. The transplant is scheduled to take place shortly after the New Year... B-93 radio personality Dave Conrad to receive a kidney this holiday season (Fri, 12/10)


Clear Channel West Michigan is rolling out major changes to some of its local stations, the most significant of which will be making WOOD-AM (1300) news/talk radio both an AM and FM frequency next year. The popular local news, traffic and weather station, providing the nation's top four syndicated talk shows, will be aired simultaneously with identical programming on FM 106.9 starting in early January. A specific date has yet to be announced. Tim Feagan, Clear Channel West Michigan's vice president and regional market manager, said the addition of its No. 4-ranked station to an FM frequency is giving its listeners greater access to the local news they covet, as many on the Lakeshore cannot access the frequency this time of year...
