Michael Main is the Managing Editor for NewsRadio 1200 WOAI.
Michael began his relationship with Clear Channel radio at Newsradio 1200 WOAI in 1985 as a writer/reporter and quickly added numerous responsibilities including key roles in producing WOAI's four hour morning drive newscast. He is the first person in the door each morning, if you can call 1:30 a.m. the morning.
Michael is responsible for coordinating much of Newsradio 1200 WOAI's on-air news product and also produces his daily "Cyberstuff" feature focusing on Internet and tech related topics.
Michael's reporting has won him national recognition. Honors he has won over the years include several Press Club of Dallas "Katie" Awards for Best General News story coverage, Best Radio feature, and Best Spot News story, all of which attest to the diversity of his skills.
Michael was an integral team member when Newsradio 1200 WOAI won Edward R. Murrow awards, the most prized awards in broadcast journalism in 1994 and 1996. He's also been honored by the Associated Press, the Scripps Howard Foundation National Journalism awards, UPI, and the Texas State Network.
Michael is responsible for writing the news product for various news readers on KJ-97 FM, KZEP-FM and Soft Rock 101.9 in San Antonio, and writes and anchors news each morning for Clear Channel stations in Corpus Christi, El Paso, Brownsville and Wichita, Kansas.
Michael is happily married to his wife, Amy. He is the proud stepfather of three grown children and grandfather to one very spoiled grandchild.
The internet and our gadgets are letting more of us share more of our lives with more people, but apparently many of us are keeping one big chunk of our digital lives private: pornography surfing.
Extreme Tech has crunched the numbers for porn sites on the web and they're eye-popping to say the least. The research shows the largest pornography website receives 4.4 billion page views per month. That’s triple or quadruple the page views for huge websites like the Drudge Report and ESPN, and that's only one porno site!
It also appears people spend a lot more time on porn sites than you might expect (insert your own punch line here). The numbers indicate porn surfers spend 15 to 20 minutes on these sites, compared to 3 to 6 minutes on information websites.
You can read all the details of the study here, but the most startling conclusion to me is that the authors now believe 30 percent of all the data being transferred across the web at this moment is directly linked to porn.
