    Studio SPJ with Jennifer Livingston

    in Podcasting

    Wisconsin television anchor/reporter Jennifer Livingston made headlines of her own in October went she responded on air to a viewer who criticized her as being overweight.   The incident sparked a national discussion about obesity, self-esteem and bullying.   It also put Livingston in the unusual position of being part of the news rather than the person reporting it.    Now that a few months have passed, Livington has agreed to be our guest on Studio SPJ.   The half-hour conversation, hosted by the Milwaukee chapter of SPJ, will air live on Jan. 3 at 1 p.m. Eastern.   A graduate of Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa, Livingston started in 1997 as a general assignment reporter for WKBT in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.   The viewer sent an email to Livingston telling her to "reconsider your responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle."   Livingston responded with a 4-minute on-air segment in which she acknowledged being  overweight but said the viewer's words were cruel.   She went on to say: "To all the children out there who feel lost, who are struggling with your weight, your sexual preference, your disability, even the acne on your face, listen to me right now: do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies."   A YouTube clip of Livingston's remarks has drawn more than 10.5 million views. The incident also lead to Livingston making an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show.

    The Left Has Run Milwaukee for Decades

    in Politics Conservative

    The Left Has Run Milwaukee for Decades. Are you better off or worse? I dare say we are worse off! Already this year we are leaps and bounds ahead in murders than at this same time last year. Mayor Tom Barrett and his police chief Ed Flynn take no responsibility for this. In fact they choose to blame Gov. Scott Walker for the crime in THIER city.

    Ian C Jordan and I discuss these issues along with others today on The Earl Hall Show.


    Milwaukee is a city not much smaller than Baltimore, MD. We face many of the same problems with unemployment, crime, poor educational standards, and racial tension with law enforcement.

    Like Baltimore, Milwaukee is city that is as far Left leaning as any. Dems have had control of the city yet no one seems to blame the actual leadership for these issues. Shouldn't things be getting better if the left has all the answers and the power?

    Racism In Milwaukee? - Black People Need To Step Up

    in Politics Conservative

    Two Bucks


    The story of Two Bucks, an East Side Bar in Milwaukee, may never recovery from an insedent that happened over the weekend.  Black patrons, for no reaon were asked to leave the bar by the owner.  Subsequently many of the employees quit and are now calling for a boycott of the bar.  There are two situations with this story that I find interesting.  We will discuss it and take your calls on this morning.


    The Milwaukee River Development Paln


    Currently there are 4 developers competing to develop the downtown site on the Milwaukee river.  Court proceedings and law suites are already under way.  One must wonder what kind of deals are being made and of course what officials are participating in Quid pro quo.


    I looked at this story and wondered something rather strange.  Is Common Core causing Blacks and people in poverty to be left out of opportunites.  Sure you may wonder why I am going in this direction but take a listen to the show and you will see why.


    Will Hillary Clinton Be Our Next President?


    African-Americans really need to look closesly at the facts. Our inner cities that are failing are a direct result of Liberal politics.  In essence this is the new slavery and we keep voting for it.


    There have been no Democratic candidates that are a serious threat to Hillary Clinton step forward.  It really makes me wonder why her scandal ridden past seems to be a non-issue to them.  Benghazi, Quid pro quo deals, as well as distancing herself from her husbands crime bill issues are enough to really make one pause.  At least they should, but some how this woman has been able to get around all of this.  She has not and most likely will not sit down and do a long interview without knowing all of the questions in advance.
