A personal note to you:
I'd like to thank you for visiting my blog page. I search for content that's entertaing and informative. Radio is evolving before your ear's - and now before your eyes! After a long radio career away from Chicago I feel so blessed to have come full circle, back where it all began... here at V-103.
Plenty of people talk the talk - but Mother Betty Price in Englewood has walked the walk. Every week for nearly 25 years Mrs. Price has managed to feed 5-thousand folks a month!
Feed, Clothe, and Help the Needy (FCHN) www.fchnprogram.com has never turned down a family or individual that needed food or clothing. She and her husband Deacon Price lost their home "twice" to keep the doors open. Help them if you're able http://www.fchnprogram.com/ Also, if you know of others who are quietly doing great things in the community please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org or leave me a voicemail at 312 540-2386.
I love quotes from all people, it could be Dr. Felder at New Faith in Matteson someone like Ghandi. Although the one that always seems to stop me in my tracks is this one:
"Lots of people want to ride with you in the Limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the Limo breaks down."
- Oprah Winfrey
Glenn is a 25 year radio broadcast veteran. A Chicago native, Cosby entered broadcasting as a grade school sports intern in the late 70’s at WBMX.
In the early 80’s Cosby was a student at Bishop College in Dallas Tx and worked for KNOK-FM (formerly owned by Earl Graves of Black Enterprise Magazine) where he developed as air personality.
He became the youngest operations manager at ABC Radio Networks at age 26. At ABC, Glenn launched America’s first 24-hour urban adult syndicated format, “The Touch,” in 1990. “The Touch” was the first nationwide music format to register #1 ratings (Adults 25-54) in New Orleans at affiliate KMEZ. Cosby first launched “The Touch” in 1990 with 26 affiliate stations. By the time he resigned for family reasons in 1996, the total affiliate count was nearly 80 stations.
Who is the most dominant figure in sports today? LeBron James? Michael Phelps? Please. Get that weak sauce out of here. It is Serena Williams. She runs women's tennis like Kim Jong-un runs North Korea: ruthlessly, with spare moments of comedy, indolence and the occasional appearance of a split personality.
Here are the facts. Serena is the number-one tennis player in the world. Maria Sharapova is the number-two tennis player in the world. Sharapova is tall, white and blond, and, because of that, makes more money in endorsements than Serena, who is black, beautiful and built like one of those monster trucks that crushes Volkswagens at sports arenas. Sharapova has not beaten Serena in nine years. Think about that for a moment. Nine years ago Matchbox Twenty and John Edwards mattered. The chasm between Serena and the rest of women's tennis is as vast and broad as the space between Ryan Lochte's ears. Get back to me when LeBron beats Kevin Durant's Oklahoma City Thunder every time for nine years.
Serena's dominance has been fueled by not giving a shit what you or anyone else thinks about her methods. Serena has been giving tennis the two-finger salute for more than half her life. Not that she cops to it. "Lots of my friends have been telling me lately that I'm spoiled," Serena says with a baffled look on her face. "And I'm like, 'Really? I'm not spoiled.'"
I almost spit Coke through my nose. Serena does what she wants, when she wants. If she'd pulled a Jamesian I'm-taking-my-talents-to-South Beach event, she would have put it on pay-per-view and hawked her Home Shopping Network-all-under-a-hundred-bucks fashion line during the commercial breaks. And she would not have given a flying fuck what you thought. This is a woman who one minute is reading inspirational notes during changeovers and then, in the 2009 U.S. Open semifinals, threatening to personally make a line judge eat a tennis ball.
Tennis ninnies chided Serena for taking months off earlier in her career to flirt with fashion and make cameo TV appearances, you know, like a normal person might do after making tens of millions of dollars. Chris Evert, an icon of the game, questioned Serena's dedication just 18 months ago.
Evert couldn't have been more wrong. The players Serena entered the game with are long retired, burned out and discarded. Meanwhile, Serena came back last year from foot problems and blood clots that could have killed her. Instead, she has gone 74-3 since losing at the 2012 French Open and won three Grand Slams and an Olympic gold medal. After each one, tennis gurus whispered, "That was Serena's last hurrah."
Not quite. This year she has won the past four tournaments she's entered and is on a 31-match winning streak, the longest of her career. If she doesn't pocket her sixth Wimbledon and her fifth U.S. Open titles this summer, check the ground because the world may have spun off its axis. She's never been more dominant than now, at the age of 31, which is about 179 in tennis years. (Evert now says Serena is the best of all time.) Hell, even dating Brett Ratner couldn't stop her. Neither could older sister Venus, merely the second-best tennis player of the past 20 years.
What's her secret? Serena only compromises with herself.
"I've thought it would be cool to have a baby young," says Serena. "You know, be my road dog – like my dogs, they travel the world – but there's always something you have to give up for success. Everything comes at a cost. Just what are you willing to pay for it?"
