Caleb Gordon, News & Program Director for Liggett Communication’s WPHM-AM (Port Huron) visited two MAB member stations in the Upper Peninsula in May to gather interviews for his station’s local morning talk show.

Gordon visited Taconite Broadcasting’s WMQT and WZAM in Marquette and Aurora Media’s WYKX and WDBC in Escanaba to meet with local leaders and station personalities. The interviews were played back on June 10 when Gordon filled in for WPHM’s Paul Miller that morning.

Among the guests featured were Marquette’s mayor, a manager from Travel Marquette, Delta County’s Economic Development Alliance Director, the president of the Delta County Historical Society, and personalities from both Taconite Broadcasting and Aurora Media. Interviews from the UP tour can be found on WPHM’s podcast page and are dated June 10th.

Caleb thanks WMQT’s Jim Koski and WDBC’s Craig Woerpel for helping to line up guests and Aurora Media’s Todd Mohr for his hospitality!
