    Michael Baisden with Boyd and Lucinda

    in Lifestyle

    His radio career began in 2003 when 98.7 KISS FM in New York City offered him a position as the afternoon drive-time host. Because of budget constraints the station was unable to offer him a salary. Michael’s response was, “Just give me the damned mic!” And sure enough, within six months, their afternoon drive ratings went from number 9 to number 1. He is an Author and Motivational Speaker.

    Late Nights with Lance Scurv - The Michael Baisden Lynching!

    in Current Events

    Tonight on Late Nights with LanceScurv I want us to really break down what really happened by the limited facts that we have. In a very disturbing month where several of our Black Media Icons have been given the boot by Corporate America, I think we all should look into what is the bigger plan as these strategic moves are being made in the manner of a controlled demolition. In one of my earlier articles I quoted comedian/talk show host/author/actor Steve Harvey when he stated that "Hollywood is MORE racist than America."
    So with not only the cancellation of The Michael Baisden Show, which is at the height of its popularity, but with the firing from CNN of Soledad O'Brien, Donna Brazile & Roland Martin, along with the public lynching/character assassination of the righteously outspoken Boston Talk Show Host Warren Ballentine, one has to ask oneself "are strong Black influential voices now on the hitlist?
    Why is this happening and WHO is NEXT?
    .......this is a discussion that I believe is LONG overdue!

    Join Angela Thomas & Rodney Smith for an episode of Our Own Voices Live!
    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.

(347.205.9089 is the call in number.) Tonight, we're going to be addressing one of the MOST SUBTLE WAYS WOMEN CAN BUILD UP THIER MAN TO BE A BETTER PROTECTOR & PROVIDER in their relationships.   A MUST LISTEN TO FOR BOTH MEN & WOMEN!!!


    After interviewing OVER 1000 men from AROUND THE WORLD, Ro Cutno INSIST that "Man Leads, Women Follow, Everyone Wins"  Ro Elori Cutno conducted a two year long study on the nature of good men. Wisdom and insight from 16 countries and 5 of our great continents, demonstrates that healthy men are wired in very similar ways. We learned that good men such as these can only be happily paired with women who understand them.


    Basically it goes like this: Man wants to feel strong to please woman. Woman understands this need. Woman is appreciative. Man pleases more.


    A simple scientific truth can go a long way, especially when broken down step by step. This is a book which everyone in the Modern Western world needs to know. Written as a manual for both men and women, the detailed findings within this book's pages will change the way that you see love forever.
