Developed in 2002 to raise preventive health awareness in the African American community, TALOTTD has grown from one day into a full-fledged initiative that impacts more than eight million listeners weekly. The year-long health awareness campaign is heavily promoted through Joyner’s “Get Well Wednesdays” feature.

According to Dr. Ian Smith, "African Americans have arrived unceremoniously at the most critical health crossroads in our history.  It's incumbent upon all of us to be proactive and generous in the spreading of information and increasing access.  Doctor Day and the national buzz it generates are an important part of the solution in that they raise necessary awareness about a health crisis in this country that can have a profoundly detrimental effect on our very lives and those of future generations."

Joyner and the morning show crew are excited about this huge event and according to Tom Joyner, “What better city, than the city of brotherly love to launch the first national Take A Loved One To The Doctor Health Festival?  Now I hope that you all show me some love by coming out and supporting.”

National sponsors include the Alzheimer’s Association, Bayer, Crest, Denny’s, Legacy For Health, Novo Nordisk, NeighborWorks America, Susan G. Komen CIRCLE OF PROMISE, The Ohio State University Medical Center and WalMart/Relion Prime.

More news... GMA3 anchors T. J. Holmes and Amy Robach have been fired by ABC after their work affair was deemed a distraction by the network. TMZ, which first reported on their departure, cites network sources who claim they will receive payouts per their contracts. ABC reportedly accused both journalists of various forms of misconduct to justify the firings.

Nick Cannon has walked away from radio for the moment and has decided to end “Nick Cannon Radio” and “Cannon’s Countdown.” The shows were distributed by Skyview Networks and quietly went away in December. He is reportedly set to make a major media announcement in two weeks. Cannon's move necessitated 94.7 The Block (WXBK-FM New York) to hire Cipha Sounds to host middays.

A woman who is believed to be DJ Akademiks' girlfriend slammed a raw egg into his face and walked off angrily as he was live streaming. That's it. Google it. Perhaps it's something that should have happened long ago.
