Tom Joyner’s REACH Media Inc., parent company of the ‘Tom Joyner Morning Show,’ announced an agreement with Crawford Broadcasting, which will feature a more customized morning program on Chicago’s SOUL 106.3 FM catered specifically to his “radio hometown.”

This is truly a case where the voice of the people was heard and action was taken.  I commend Crawford Broadcasting for taking a proactive move to bring Tom back to his radio hometown of Chicago.

Keep up the great work Tom and welcome home.

I just watched a video interview with Charles Barkley where he talks about his time in jail.   CLICK HERE to see the interview, it’s less than four minutes long so I encourage you to check it out now.  In the interview he talks about how much it meant for complete strangers to come up to him and encourage him.  You never know what a kind word of encouragement can do for someone.  Go out and encourage somebody today.

I found it interesting, I hope you do too.

Heath Ledger Wins The Oscar For Best Supporting Actor

February 22, 2009

Back when The Dark Knight was released I predicted that this movie would win several Oscars, but to my surprise it was not nominated for best picture.  However, Heath Ledger was nominated for his outstanding performance as the Joker.  As we all know, Heath died unexpectedly shortly after The Dark Knight was finished so there were more than a few people that predicted that he would be posthumously honored with an Oscar for his final role.   Tonight that prediction came true and I’m glad that it did.  Heath’s performance in The Dark Knight really made the movie memorable.  Congratulations!
