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!
If you saw the Presidential debate, you saw it when Mitt Romney said he would cut funding for PBS. Even if you didn't see it, you heard about it. After that statement, all kinds of Sesame Street pictures hit Facebook and the web.
Well, it keeps going. Oops.
Somebody forgot to ask Big Bird for permission.
According to the Daily Beast, “Sesame Street’s” letters of the day are T-A-K-E I-T D-O-W-N, O-B-A-M-A.
After the president’s campaign used Big Bird to mock Romney in a new ad (see below), “Sesame Street” asked Obama to pull the spot.
In a statement on its blog, “Sesame Street” said that it doesn’t participate in political campaigns.
“We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down,” the blog post read.
The ad cast Romney as the only soul brave enough to fight Big Bird, an “evil genius” that was not only big and yellow, but a menace to our economy.
