I am excited to announce my first guest is none other than my boss, my friend, the legendary Tom Joyner. Yes, @flyjocktomjoyner has agreed to peek out of retirement to be my very first guest. I hope that you will join us!"

Anthony Brown and Myra J. along with comedians Dominique, George Wallace and many others.

It has been postponed.
