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!
Meagan Good came under fire recently from a fan who criticized the actress for changing up her image now that she is married to
preacher DeVon Franklin.
She posted a flyer on her Instagram page promoting a church event that her husband was involved with. In the comments under the flyer, a fan commented: “She’s changed her whole image by marrying that man.”
Good actually saw the comment and decided to reply to the
“Hope my image hasn’t changed … I still want to appeal to the people that are just like me : the most judged-underdogs looked down upon because people assume they know what they are based on what
they read in a negative blog or see in picture that’s captioned, that’s been altered to project someone else’s desired image for me,” Good wrote. “I’m exactly the same person.. I’ve always loved God.. I’ve been speaking about God in all of my interviews for the past 10 years .. some people just now notice.”
The actress clarified that she’s always been a Christian who believed in Jesus, long before she and Franklin wed last summer.
“Maybe some people’s perception of me has changed ..but I haven’t.. my husband fell in love with me because of who I ‘already’ was.. not because of who some think I am now,” Good continued. “But
then again I guess that’s the way of the world. Maybe my image has changed to some so those people can see me for who I’ve always been.”
Good’s response apparently convicted the fan who criticized her originally and they ultimately apologized to the actress for their initial remark.
“That was very well put and you are absolutely correct. I hope my words weren’t offensive to you or your husband,” posted the
fan, before wishing Good and her husband the best. “I obviously made my statements based on the very little bit that I saw from the outside looking in. I was trying to highlight what I believe a good man can do for a woman. In doing that I unintentionally diminished the fact that you are and have continued to be a very good woman.”
The actress accepted the person’s apology.
“First thank you for your intention … I receive that .. second thank you for [your] maturity in not getting offended and getting my heart beyond the response being true- but guarded …Thank you for
that … I hear you God bless you,” she closed.
