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!

Via Gossip Extra reports:
It’s going to be as HUGE as Jordan’s play in the old Chicago Bulls’ six championship drives!
One employee of a vendor working near Jordan’s 37,000-square-foot home told us nearly 20 young men are building tents for the reception and banquet.
The sheer size of the structures surprised our source, the veteran of a dozen big deal weddings.
“Three tents are being put up in his backyard, over the surface of two football fields,” he said.
Most of those involved with Jordan’s wedding have signed confidentiality agreements, and the source asked not to be identified by name.
“I calculated a total under-roof space of about 600 feet long by 150 feet wide. I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ve been working weddings for a while. It looks like he’s having about 2,000 people over.”
The amount of equipment being brought to the house is also impressive.
By mid-afternoon today, three semis with Illinois license plates waiting in line for access to Jordan’s property.
There were four smaller trucks as well, and two large vans carrying the sound system for the party.
A cop source in Palm Beach, of all places, tells me the tiny island’s department has been ordered to beef up security at Bethesda-By-The-Sea Episcopal Church from 2-6 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
