Recovery and reinvention: Look out Regis Philbin! Dr. Drew's "Loveline" co-star and addiction survivor "Psycho" Mike Catherwood is all cleaned up and fit to shimmy in the spotlight

Check out my new cover-story interview with the humble shock jock in the July issue of Muscle & Body magazine.

From my intro:

Every soft-bellied, hard-living morning-show deejay propping yourself up on coffee, donuts, cigarettes and Jack Daniels: Meet your antithesis. Mike Catherwood, who co-hosts the popular, nationally syndicated call-in radio series "Loveline," isn't just the most taut-bodied, telegenic face in radio. The raunchy-humored comic, known to listeners as "Psycho Mike," has muscled his way through more than a decade of sobriety - following six years of self-destructive substance abuse - to prove that being a health-minded L.A. shock jock in recovery doesn't mean losing your edge.

Catherwood achieved serious TV face time this year subbing for Regis Philbin and gyrating on "Dancing with the Stars," but he's still best known for the advice show he co-hosts with addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky. Catherwood, 32, met the good doctor when he was a 20-year-old aspiring punk-rock star detoxing at the Las Encinas Hospital in Pasadena, Calif., after abusing everything from crack cocaine, LSD and ecstasy, to meth and alcohol.
