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!
according to the Hollywood Reporter
Judge Joe Brown, the second highest-rated court show in television syndication after Judge Judy, has been canceled by CBS Television Distribution.
The cancellation comes after negotiations on a new contract broke down, apparently over Brown’s salary. He reportedly has been making $20 million a year, but CTD was looking to trim his compensation in line with a decline in his ratings.
To be fair, all of the court shows have seen declines of as much as 20 percent this season -- with the exception of Judge Judy who remains
number one by a wide margin.
At this point, Judge Brown is scheduled to run in original and repeat episodes on the Fox owned stations until September, when they will
have the opportunity to reprogram his time periods.
Judge Brown may not be done yet, though. He has met with Byron Allen of Entertainment Studios about continuing his show. Allen’s Entertainment Studios has a line-up of court shows that includes America’s Court with Judge Ross, We The People With Gloria Allred and Justice for All with Judge Christna Perez. Allen’s shows play in
syndication first and then play on a company owned digital cable channel. However, it appears unlikely Entertainment Studios could pay as much as Brown has been getting under his CTD pact, according to a source.
