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!
For all of my Atlanta Housewives watchers, looks like Greg finally wore NeNe down!
According to reports, Greg proposed to NeNe for the second time on New Year’s Eve in an elaborate proposal that involved rose petals, champagne, a candle light dinner, and the couple’s initials written in hershey’s kisses.
She has not officially confirmed the rumor but she did send a not so subtle hint on Twitter when tweeted two consecutive posts, writing first:
“My Answer was…”
Followed by her next tweet, where she wrote:
Of course, you know they got divorced in 2011 but they still loved each other and have been dating off and on since then. NeNe and Greg have been together for over 17 years. They have a 13-year-old son together named Brent, Greg also raised NeNe’s son from a previous relationship named Bryson.
I say CONGRATS!
