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.
Okay, so you're not going to jog 10 miles today, how about simply getting off your butt for 30 minutes? That's the goal of a new fitness app called Human.
Human uses your phone's accelerometer to track all your activity. You essentially just set it and forget it. It doesn't give you extensive breakdowns like other fitness trackers; it simply alerts you to how near you are to reaching the goal of 30 minutes of activity a day. It will send you notifications to encourage you and, of course, you can share your progress on Facebook and Twitter.
The designers of Human are hoping it will eventually be set up to send you suggestions, like parking a longer distance from the office, to help you reach your daily goals.
Human is free for the iPhone and an Android version is on the way.
