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.
One day, you may have a TV in your eye. Researchers at Ghent University have created a liquid crystal display (LCD) that can be embedded in a contact lens.
Scientists not only had to work with extremely thin polymers, but they had to be pliable enough to be curved so they can fit over an eye and smooth enough so as not harm the wearer's vision.
Right now, the display is limited to a basic monochrome image (see the dollar sign in the photo above) but one day the technology could lead to much more advanced imaging.
The wearer doesn't see the image; it's too close for your eyes to focus. It's the people looking at you that see it. However one day this technology may lead to heads up displays inside your eyes or perhaps contact lenses that automatically darken in sunlight eliminating the need for sunglasses.
