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, your iPhone might be able to identify you by touch. Apple is making a play to buy a company called AuthenTec which specializes in biometric software and fingerprint sensors.
The deal is far from done, but it's interesting to consider the possibilities. Authentec says its systems are capable of discerning the differences and remembering all five of your fingers. That means one day your iPhone might not require a password to unlock, in fact, you won't need to remember passwords at all. You'd only have to remember which finger to use for which function.
For example, your thumb could be used to unlock your device. Your forefinger might be used to launch PayPal or some other mobile payment system, and I'm sure we could come up with a creative application for our middle fingers too.
