Meet the MAX Morning Show's Eric Michaels
If a stuffed teddy bear decided to vacation at a nuclear plant, you'd get Eric, ruler of MAX in the mornings. Oft described as "hey you" or "you know, the one with the voice", Eric spends his time doubling as a Michael Moore stand-in.Unexpectedly, Eric was yanked from his daily existence of categorizing nail clippings and thrust into on-air fame when the entire staff of his first Illinois radio station perished in a freak square dancing gang war and he was forced to fill the airtime. If not touring with the Chippendales All-Male Revue, Eric, a product of Midwestern charm and Illinois splendor, lives most of his life in seclusion as a retired boy-wonder. Eric's hobbies include pointing and laughing, standing, and inanimate objects. Sometimes, he takes a moment to enjoy a well-crafted, Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich. He holds the rare ability of being able to not only spell the word antidisestablishmentarianism, but also knows the meaning. This year, Eric's goals include finding out exactly how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop, to know the way to San Jose, to know why you can't touch this and exactly why asparagus makes pee smell. He really dreams of becoming a hot dog farmer in the wilds of Iowa. Contrary to popular belief, he is 100% prosthetic.
