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!
I guess this is really Halle Berry's time!! She just recently gave birth to her 2nd child and now she is set to get a steady gig...on tv!
Yes, Halle Berry is coming to a tv near you. The gorgeous film star is set to star in Steven Spielberg’s new CBS summer drama “Extant.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series is a futuristic thriller “about a female astronaut (Halle) trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space. The character’s experiences lead to events that ultimately change the course of human history.”
She signed a two-year production deal with CBS Television Studio and said she’s excited to work with Spielberg on the new project.
“For five months a year I’ll get to live with and play this incredibly intelligent and vulnerable woman. And for the remainder of the year, I’ll continue to look for other roles that move me as deeply as this one. I’ve found amazing partners in CBS’s Nina Tassler and Les Moonves, and the incredible Steven Spielberg, along with his Amblin production team, whose
vision and creativity in storytelling is unparalleled.”
I will be watching! Will you?
After years of production delays, new $100 bills with high-tech features to prevent counterfeiting are debuting next month, set to go into circulation on October 8th. The new $100 bill still bears the image of Benjamin Franklin, but it adds part of the Declaration of Independence, written in script from Franklin's left shoulder to the right edge of the bill. A writing quill and ink well are printed behind text, with the ink in the well changing colors from copper to green when the bill is turned. A 3-D blue security ribbon goes down near the center of the bill, and a watermark of Franklin appears on the right side of the bill when it's held up to light. The $5, $10, $20 and $50 bills have all be redesigned during the last decade to add security features, with the $1 bill the only one that hasn't gotten a new look.

There is a fake ad that is going around! It has already fooled some folk into believing that Apple's new operating system waterproofs their phones!!
Come on, people! Really?
I've posted the fake ad below and it really looks like a real Apple ad, but it over promised anything that Apple could do. It tells Apple users to "Upgrade to iOS 7 and become waterproof." and some more stuff!
Let me assure you, that the update to iOS7 has nothing to do with the parts of your phone, just the things that make your phone work. It will still mess up if you get it wet.
