Hey it’s Tim Thomas in for Mitch today.
I grew up listening to classic rock music. And Mitch Michaels was one of the best…and still is. In my short time in this business I have come across many personalities. I began my career as an intern with WERV The River over 5 years ago. Scott was still doing mornings, Danielle was mid-days and Mitch…well he was doing the cruise. I remember meeting him for the first time. I was nervous. Here was this radio legend who has been in Chicago radio for over 45 years! And…he could not have been nicer to me. I was just a intern…and he spoke to me like I was a colleague who he had worked with forever. Kind, generous, and would take a few minutes to answer any question I had and was always willing to share his wisdom. Now, I get to call him a friend and a co-worker and I still learn the tricks of the trade from a true giant of radio. He is truly one of the best and I am honored to fill in for him today. If you ever get the chance to meet him..do it. A nice man who loves what he does. Now lets hope the Radio Hall Of Fame calls his name someday!
