Albom and Izzo at WKAR

Dec 8, 2015

WKAR was honored to have radio host, TV commentator and best-selling author Mitch Albom with MSU men's basketball coach Tom Izzo in our Studio S this evening.  The pair were on hand for WJR's Mitch Albom Show as Mitch dropped into town during his book signing tour.  Among other topics, the two discussed MSU's current top spot in the men's basketball poll.  Of course, MSU football sits at #3 in the nation with a trip to the national championship series ahead.  Not a bad start to the week here in East Lansing.
