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!

Last night, I had the pleasure of hosting the Women Who Jam (Praise) event for Johnnie Walker and NABFEME. It was awesome! It was part of the Women's Revival activities at Victory in Christ Christian Church. Here are some of the pics.
The family of a slain soldier is ready to take the cemetary to court because they removed her headstone. That headstone was a 7 foot tall Spongebob Squarepants! The family went to great lengths to get the headstone done. They got the pre-approval from the cemetary, copyright clearance from Nickelodeon and spent $13,000 on it's production. It wasn't until after it was installed that the cemetary said it was just too much. They told the family that the employee made a mistake giving approval and they have to keep the other families' best interest in mind. They did offer to cover the costs of a new, more appropriate headstone that would include a smaller replica of Spongebob but the family isn't going for it. I hope they can come to some type of agreement.
