Slightly Breaking News!

Just today that “The Forum” has new life. As we know that the segment was dismissed on July 28th due to the “irreconsobile differences with management” of WNOV.

But after about a week being absent, “The Forum” host Sherwin Hughes made the breaking news via social media, that his radio segment will be on another station, 1510am WRRD Radio.

If anyone knows about the station in general it is independent news/talk radio. And it was created via my knowledge, that the station like this was born due to the overlapping of Conservative Talk Radio that blurred many in the Greater Milwaukee Area. And yes, the African-American voices like 1290 WMCS was gone in 2012. 860 AM of course is still out there. Now the shift has gone from that of dominant conservative radio, partially liberal, to have a break with filling it up with independent talk. Partially, that’s why I think the WRRD Station was created in my opinion.

On several occasions, I have listened to WRRD featuring Earl Ingram in discussing various topics. Even education. As an example of that, out of me blogging my mind all the time, I take part of a organization that supports higher education bound students for scholarships here in Milwaukee called the MLK Scholarship Coalition. This was the second occasion of this year it was promoted on the segment. This I really am proud of getting out the word of the scholarship, and the host was awarded a special appreciation a couple of years ago for his work in the community for a long time. Even on Black Radio.

But……..beginning August 13th, the same day that Milwaukee Public Schools starts early, “The Forum” will be on the air again between 8am -11am Milwaukee time. At the same time, from my understanding that WNOV’s early time slot talk show, “The Rise and Shine Morning Show” with Jermaine Reed will be during the 7am – 11am hour. So it will be interesting to see how this goes between two African-American males on two different stations discuss topics that many in the community already know and will know. Head to Head!

But for “The Forum” listeners, the black talk goes on. Be ready for August 13th for a brand new era.
