mikecampbell Mike CampbellThey call me an anchor-reporter; I prefer “Paid Informant” with 30 years in the biz, starting as News Director in Ludington, then Mt. Clemens and at an FM station in Detroit before landing at WWJ in 1987.

I report from the scene Tuesday through Friday mornings, and anchor Saturday mornings.
