Detroit Free Press:

It was a morning of Christmas tunes, sentimental stories and fond memories as Jim Harper signed off of his WMGC-FM (105.1) morning show at 9 a.m. today. Sharing the air waves during the radio veteran's final broadcast were his current "Jim Harper in the Morning" co-hosts Cyndy Canty and Mike Bradley. Former producer Fay Samona, who left WMGC to join Port Huron's country music station WSAQ-FM (107.1)'s morning show earlier this year, also joined Harper, Canty and Bradley during today's broadcast.

WEYI-TV Ch. 25:

Two years ago, Tony Clark and Tony Burkhead decided to relaunch an AM radio station in a down economy. A risky business move to say the least, but a move that has brought 'oldies' music back into a community that supports the format. "Its nostalgic. When you tune through you hear talk and a lot of things, but you don't hear oldies anymore or personality anymore on an AM radio station, so we needed to change that," says Burkhead, who co-hosts 'BS in the Mornings' with Sue Collins from 6-10 a.m. every weekday.
