  • Springfield Police Lawsuit - The family of a man who died after he was run over by a Springfield police cruiser has sued, claiming wrongful death.
  • Lame Duck Education Legislation - Lawmakers were locked in a stalemate over a few issues on the last day of the lame-duck session in Ohio. That includes a proposal to make some of the biggest changes ever to the state’s education department. Statehouse correspondent Andy Chowreports.
  • Lame Duck Criminal Justice Legislation - Ohio lawmakers passed a criminal justice bill during the final hours of the lame-duck session late on Wednesday night. The bill expands early release programs, increases eligibility for transitional control, and allows more people to seek an expungement of their records.
A chance meeting with a volunteer in a college computer lab in 1987 brought Mike to WYSO. He started filling in for various music shows, and performed various production, news, and on-air activities during the late 1980s and 90s, spinning vinyl and cutting tape before the digital evolution.
