For those of you who have followed my career over the last 10 years, you already know that I have a strong commitment to the community, and also a strong desire to lay a solid foundation for the next generation of leaders and difference makers. Throughout my career in radio I have always had the desire to do things that have an impact and leave a lasting legacy for those who will come after me. It is because of this desire to make a difference and be a positive role model for young people around the world that I have decided to take a more active role in changing the world that we live in.As of today (December 3, 2012) I will be working with The Family Resource Center of Raleigh in North Carolina as an Education Case Manager for Project P.U.L.S.E. (People Using Life Skills Effectively). In this new role I will be educating young people and adults about the importance of healthy relationships and providing them with tools to navigate their way through life’s choices and down a path of good decision making.
It is my desire to use my influence to make a difference, and I feel that this new position will allow me to do so in a manner unlike any other. I am grateful to Kim Best, Vernita Griffith and Lorraine McCurdy for giving me the opportunity to work with such a wonderful organization. I look forward to using my knowledge and experience to spread the importance of healthy relationships to any and everyone that I come in contact with.
I will continue with my role as on air personality for Radio One’s WQOK in Raleigh, as well as blogger at thesinglefathersblog.com. I’ll be taking a brief hiatus from my Showtimesays.com, but it will be relaunching in early 2013 with a new look and all new content.

It looks like T-Mobile is finally going to get the iPhone. The cell phone giant will make an announcement next week that the iPhone will be available on their network in early 2013 according to BGR
T-Mobile USA may announce as early as next week that it will finally carry Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone. In a note to clients on Thursday, Merrill Lynch analyst Scott Craig reports “speculation is heightening” that Deutche Telekom will announce the iPhone’s imminent arrival on its subsidiary T-Mobile during next week’s analyst day meetings, scheduled to take place on December 6th and 7th. While T-Mobile hasn’t yet begun to roll out its new LTE network, the carrier has devoted a tremendous amount of resources to updating its HSPA data network in order to make it compatible with Apple’s current iPhone models. According to Fortune, Craig notes that a T-Mobile launch would add 33 million subscribers to Apple’s addressable market in the U.S., giving Apple access to 98% of all post-paid wireless subscribers in the country.
As a T-Mobile subscriber myself all I can say is IT’S ABOUT TIME!!!!
