Rochester Today also features a rotating panel of experts who make themselves available to assist KROC-AM listeners. The Legal Eagle David Shulman provides advice on legal issues, Dick Zeitler brings decades of experience as a mechanic to Auto Tech 101, and Jim Walters from The Power of Learning extols the benefits of critical thinking. Local historians Alan Calavano and John Kruesel contribute to a monthly feature on Rochester's history and Rochester Magazine editor Steve Lange also stops by once a month to preview his publication and share his unique sense of humor. Tracy McCray joins Andy every Wednesday to add even more spice to the discussion. Andy spends the remainder of his time as a member of the KROC news team with over two decades of experience covering local issues and events.
