Filling In For A Radio Legend-No Pressure?

Mitch Michaels

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 it.  A nice man who loves what he does. Now lets hope the Radio Hall Of Fame calls his name someday!
