SORT BY Relevancy
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.

God willing, The Brother Marcus Internet Radio Show will continue this week with another powerful edition of our show! In this installment of the show we will discuss the topic of, “You’ve got a big EGO – Has your Ego evolved into a God complex?” What is this thing called the Ego and why is it ruining so many very talented people right before our very eyes? Everyone agrees that self-confidence and assurance can make the difference between those that win in life and those who are not successful. But there is a fine line between a healthy ego and being an egomaniac. Problems become inevitable when the center of the universe resides around an individual's ego. Is your ego out of control and do people secretly and openly despise you because of your ego? Have you become a diva? Why are you acting like you are some monarch presiding over an empire? Do you care more about your own self-image than anything or anyone else in life? Are you the Lord of no Rings? Is the preservation of your ego hurting you and everyone else around you? How many people have to die on the battlefield of your Ego?
