Kellie Michaels Leaving WUSW/Springfield, IL

Midwest Family WUSW/Springfield, IL PD/morning show co-host Kellie Michaels is stepping down Aug. 21. Her husband and co host Brian Pierce welcomes station part-timer Troy Armstrong as his new wakeup partner. “After 25 years of getting up before the sun I wanted to step back and spend more time on other interests,” says Michaels. “I will certainly miss the fun Brian and I have had but certainly won’t miss the early morning hours.” They joined the station in 2015 (CAT 9/8/15) after stops at KFDI/Wichita and AC WNNS/Springfield, IL. The station is not planning to fill the PD position at this time.
