MY BROADCASTING LIFE:
I began my broadcast career at Memphis State University on their jazz station WSMS in 1987. From there she worked in television news at WMC Channel 5 as a vidifont (graphics) operator. By the time I left, 2 1/2 years later, my duties had expanded including writing, editing, and even shooting video for news stories. I took a break from broadcasting and worked in Human Resources for 4 years. In 1994 I became "Eileen The Love Queen" an on-air personality at WDIA, then moved to KJMS (Smooth 101) as "Eileen The Diva". While holding down an air shift, I was promoted to Programming Assistant for WDIA & WHRK (K97). When Clear Channel acquired 2 other urban stations in the market, I was promoted to Assistant Program Director for WDIA, WHRK (K97) and KJMS (Smooth 101). Clear Channel debuted its 1st FM gospel station in December 2002, WHAL 95.7 Hallelujah FM. I was instrumental in launching this station and was given added responsibility when upper management named me Program Director and now I consult the other Hallelujah formats in other cities. Before joining the morning team on Hallelujah, I was heard on the Fun Morning Show with Bobby O'Jay on WDIA.
I grew up in Mt. Pisgah on Weaver Rd, under Rev. A.C. Jackson and Rev. Frank Harris (19 years). Then I matured at Mississippi Blvd. Christian Church under Dr. Alvin O. Jackson (16 years). Now, I am continuing to grow at Greater New Liberty on Webb under Rev. Darrel K. Shack...TGAND 4 Life!
Newly crowned American Idol, Candace Glover did an amazing duet with Jennifer Hudson. Jennifer looks great. Seems like she's even smaller! She is my new inspiration to keep working out! But I digress...back to American Idol, If you missed it, here it is!
Mariah did a medley of her hits and had on a gorgeous dress.
Who knew that doing a quick soundbite on the news would lead to a lifestyle change! Well, that is what happened for Sweet Brown! She has a new reality show that will air later this year, in Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas, a cookbook and a BBQ sauce called Oh Lord, Jesus it's a Fire! Check out this video where she talks about her whirlwind year.

The “Queens of Comedy” funny woman—who released two best-selling books, “Skinny Women Are Evil: Notes of a Big Girl in a Small-Minded World” and “Skinny Cooks Can’t Be Trusted”—built a great portion of her comedy routine over the years criticizing thin women.
Now, the Baltimore-bred talent shows off her 82-pound weight loss.
Avid fans of Mo’Nique have watched her weight loss journey on her website MoniqueWorldwide.org in a section titled “Follow the Journey.” On the site, Mo’Nique posts videos of her workouts and healthy lifestyle regimen.
Since her BET late night BET talk show, “The Mo’Nique Show,” was cancelled in July 2011, Mo’Nique has kept a low profile. She and her husband, Sidney host an online U-Stream show each Tuesday at 3pm ET. She will soon host a new online show, “Mo’Nique’s Book of the Month” every first Monday of the month starting soon.
Looking good, Mo! If she can do it, we can do it!
You guys get a little bit of Michael Davis' singing but you never get as much as Sherry & I get! Oh my! We have gotten used to it, but the people on American Airlines couldn't get used to the singing this lady was was doing on the fligt from LA to New York. They had to make an emergency landing in Kansas City to put this lady off the plane. After she repeatedly ignored the flight attendants request to stop singing, she was escorted off the plane in handcuffs...singing all the way.
She was later released without being charged. She claims the incident happened because she is a diabetic.
