Today's show: "Michael Baisden Live, The Hoodie Awards & Gabby Douglas!" 

Michael Baisden Live aired in Las Vegas and he had a Town hall right in the community at the Santa-Fe Hotel & Casino

The town hall was almost packed with many thanking the popular radio talk show host and author of The Maintenance Man, for not forgetting where he came from. 

The Hoodie Awards with Steve Harvey is also in town.

The popular author who is retiring from standup comedy this year brought a weekend of recognition for locals and plenty of partying.  Angela & I have attended the weekend events and will broadcast live from one of the venues.

Gabby Douglas! 

Gabby as she is called by friends and teammates wasn’t really known until she was invited to the Olympic trials where she stunned the crowd and beat the reigning champ, Jordyn Wieber.  She didn’t stop there, she went on to help Team USA Gymnastics win the Olympic Gold Medal and later to win the individual all around Gold! 

As her back story has unfolded there was a slight Tweet stir about her hair but we want to talk about the first African American to win the Olympic All Around Gold Medal.  We have seen her mom and siblings in the stands but many have asked about her dad.  What a great American story!  Click here, here & here to read more.
