Lansing State Journal:

Michael Patrick Shiels will soon be back on radio and TV. He'll return quietly -- not his natural state. "This is a soft opening," Shiels said. "There will be a big one later." His "Michigan's Big Show" was set to start today. In a late switch Friday, it was pushed back, due to what Shiels called paperwork problems concerning city code in building his downtown studio.
