Greetings Kings and Queens. Today is a very special day to my hometown, Tony Neal, and the Core DJ's all over the world! HAPPY 5th ANNIVERSARY TO TONY NEAL & THE CORE DJ'S! Tony posted a note via Twitter that keeps it short and sweet.
"5 years ago (Nov 24th, 2004), I sat in my living room on 36th & Congress in Milwaukee & tried to figure out a way to get DJ's, Artists, & Labels closer .. That was the BIRTH of the Core DJ's .. the first person I called was BIG TIGGER ... the rest was HISTORY. Now a WORLDWIDE ORGANIZATION (that started... in Milwaukee, WI) ... Happy Anniversary to The Core DJ family."
Always wishing you well Tony!!!!

Since launching her live talk show in July, former syndicated radio jock Wendy Williams has posted double-digit gains in all key demographics.
The Debmar-Mercury media company, which produces and distributes 'The Wendy Williams Show,' announced that the FOX television network will renew the daytime talk show through 2012.
Debmar-Mercury co-president Mort Marcus credited the show's Ask Wendy advice segment , How You Doin' opening and Hop Topics entertainment headline rehash for the runaway success.
"Her substantial growth in the key rating demos, which stations care about the most, has quickly put her program within striking distance of many of today's established and successful talk shows," Marcus said.

The former fiancee of a cast member of the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" died from a rare trait of sickle cell anemia that became fatal because of a fight he had in the parking lot of a strip club. Still, according to a report from the Fulton County medical examiner that was provided to AJC.com, Ashley “A.J.” Jewell’s death is a homicide.
“Although Mr. Jewell died of complications of his underlying natural disease conditions, [the] complications would not have occurred if he had not experienced the extreme exertion that was part of the physical altercation,” the report said. “Due to the active involvement of another person, the manner of death is classified as a homicide.”
Jewell's family was angered by the report and plans to hold a prayer vigil at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot of the strip bar, the location of the fight that led to his death later that evening, according to a news release.
"Although the medical examiner's report released to us yesterday does classify my son’s death as homicide, the report is contradictory because it simultaneously blames a ‘sickle cell crisis’,” said the Rev. A.B. Jewell, Sr.
His mother, Purtis Jewell, said in the release, said they are unsatisfied with the investigation.
The news release said they may ask that Jewell's body be exhumed for a second autopsy.
