The Afternoon Drive

Weekdays 3:00pm – 6:00 pm


Bill Froehlich

Bill joined the award-winning WTCM News team in December of 2010, but he’s not the new kid on the block. He’s been covering Northern Michigan news since 2002, first as weekend anchor at TV 7&4 for many years, also serving as a reporter, producer, and editor. Bill then moved to 9&10 News as a reporter and fill-in anchor at their Traverse City bureau, and he continues to freelance special reports for them. He’s a Wisconsin native but also calls Colorado home, and has lived in Indiana and Montana. Bill also spends summers as the stadium announcer for the Traverse City Beach Bums.  He’s excited to be a part of “The Afternoon Drive!”




Norm Jones

Norm is part of a vanishing breed: he’s a genuine Traverse City native. Norm knows a little bit about just about everyone and everything happening around town. He is a free spirit, and rarely hesitates to say what’s on his mind. Some people find that infuriating, but his loyal audience loves that he’s the “everyman,” who never leaves a doubt about where he stands.  Norm has operated several businesses in the area, and today managing his rental properties keep him busy.
