He attended Carroll College (Carroll College (Wisconsin)) from 1963 to 1964, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1967. He then obtained an M.A. in physiological psychology from the University of Tennessee and a Ph.D. from the University of Manitoba in 1971. Dr. Michael A. Persinger at Laurentian University On February 8, 2006, it was announced that Tony Kornheiser would join Mike Tirico and Joe Theismann in the broadcast booth during Monday Night Football beginning in the 2006 NFL season. Kornheiser continued to host PTI, and Wilbon joined him on the road as they broadcast PTI each Monday from the site of the MNF game, and there has also been an extra PTI segment inserted during halftime of ESPN's Monday Night games (although in 2008, Wilbon stayed in the DC studios, on many Mondays). In the months leading up to the 2006 NFL season, Kornheiser would often offer self-deprecating comments on the PTI show, saying that he'd be horrible for the MNF job or that he wished that certain people that are topics on the show would ride the bus with him to the game, as he has an admitted fear of flying. On the April 6, 2006, edition of PTI, the same day that the upcoming NFL season's schedule was released, Kornheiser gave a humorous insight into how he felt about his upcoming travel schedule, sarcastically commenting about how there weren't any East Coast (East Coast of the United States) games on the schedule. He also took the time to apologize to fans in Jacksonville, Florida, whose city Kornheiser described in his ''Washington Post'' column as having only Waffle Houses, Kornheiser, T. (2005, January 26).

Kornheiser said on the show that if at all possible, he would like to avoid traveling to the city of Seattle again since each time he went there, the weather was atrocious (such as the downpour and wind that was constant in week 9 against Oakland and the snowstorm in week 12 against Green Bay). NTV is not the only television station that lost its affiliation status with a major TV network and became independent in 2002. Other similar disaffiliations with U.S. stations occurred at that time in ways similar to that of NTV over contract disputes, both of which were longtime network affiliates for their given areas, and both of which became independent stations afterwards. The two stations are NBC affiliate KRON-TV in San Francisco and longtime CBS affiliate WJXT in Jacksonville, Florida. However, in 2006, KRON became the San Francisco Bay Area's affiliate of MyNetworkTV, then a television network owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation and Twentieth Century Fox Television and now a television broadcast syndication service, and in 2010 took a secondary alternate NBC affiliation by airing selected NBC programming when the local owned-and-operated (O&O) NBC affiliate, KNTV (no relation to CJON-TV) in San Jose (San Jose, California), cannot do so. A similar switch would later occur in 2009 when three stations of the now-defunct CH E! (E! (Canadian TV system)) system, CHCH-TV in Hamilton, Ontario, CJNT-TV in Montreal, and CHEK-TV in Victoria, British Columbia all went independent following the collapse of E! (Coincidentally, like CJON, CHEK was originally a CBC affiliate and later a CTV affiliate.)

Van Zant aspired to be many things before finding his love for music. Notably, Ronnie was interested in becoming a boxer (as Muhammad Ali was one of his idols) and in playing professional baseball. Ronnie also tossed around the idea of becoming a stock-car racer. In fact, he would say that he was going to be the most famous person to come out of Jacksonville since Lee Roy Yarbrough. The bypass or loop routes of the Interstate Highway System have become unintended, but nearly universal, conduits for both residential and business growth in the suburbs. Besides many widenings and rebuildings, for some cities, there have been requirements for very costly new bypasses and loops outside of the original ones. This fact of urban growth around the bypasses has been particularly salient in these metropolitan areas: Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Fort Worth (Fort Worth, Texas), Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville (Jacksonville, Florida), Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri), Los Angeles, Memphis (Memphis, Tennessee), Minneapolis - St. Paul (Minneapolis-St. Paul), Nashville, Portland (Portland, Oregon), Richmond (Richmond, Virginia), Salt Lake City, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis (St. Louis, Missouri), Tampa (Tampa, Florida), and Washington, D.C..

Federal agents also raided a home in Ormond Beach (Ormond Beach, Florida) and two other clubhouses around the state. The search of the Jacksonville (Jacksonville, Florida) clubhouses netted federal agents 60 weapons including pocket and kitchen knives. U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales announced a Detroit grand jury indictment of 16 of the Outlaws National Club's members. "Members Of “Outlaws Motorcycle Club” Indicted In Detroit On Violent Crime, Drug And Gun Charges", ''United States Department of Justice'', August 15, 2007, accessed March 25, 2011. The Detroit grand jury indictment included various charges, including assault and drug distribution. Eleven Outlaws leaders and high-ranking members of the gang were arrested after a five-year investigation. The FBI said several gang members were charged with conspiracy to commit assault on members of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club in Indiana.

Jacksonville is in the First Coast region of northeast Florida and is centered on the banks of the St. Johns River, about north of Miami. The Jacksonville Beaches communities are along the adjacent Atlantic coast. The area was originally inhabited by the Timucua people, and in 1564 was the site of the French colony of Fort Caroline, one of the earliest European settlements in what is now the continental United States. Under British rule (British Florida), settlement grew at the narrow point in the river where cattle crossed, known as '''''Wacca Pilatka''''' to the Seminole and '''Cowford''' to the British. A platted town was established there in 1822, a year after the United States gained Florida (Spanish Florida) from Spain; it was named after Andrew Jackson, the first military governor (List of Governors of Florida) of the Florida Territory and seventh President of the United States.

Harbor improvements since the late 19th century have made Jacksonville a major military and civilian deep-water port. Its riverine location facilitates two U.S. Navy bases and the Port of Jacksonville, Florida's third largest seaport.
