  • I got the name Fly Jock bcecause for eight years, I flew back and forth from Dallas to Chicago to do a morning show and an afternoon show in two different cities, five days a week.

    That’s how I GOT the name. Here’s how I KEEP it.

    This week, I started when I left Friday’s big party at the National Association of Black Journalists’ convention in Tampa. Keep up with me if you can!


    Leaving NABJ, I can’t tell whether it was a convention or the next installment of CNN’s Black in America.

    Everybody is fascinated with black folks now. It’s like every day is Black History Month…it’s beautiful.

    TV … that HD isn’t kind to everybody is it? I know. I think that’s why my TV couldn’t make it. HD proved to much for the man.

    Especially the way WE like to dress on TV. Speaking of that where’s Roland Martin?

    Did you all watch him when he sat in for Campbell Brown. He got comfortable didn’t he?

    I’m Fly Jockin’ all weekend long. Kicked it off when we headed to Tampa for the National Associationof Black Journalists’ Convention. Everbody had cameras–in case a news story breaks out!

    They were all there…CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux and ESPN’s Lisa Salters were running around together. Of course Roland Martin was there…in a white sommer suit and gators. At the after party …at the bar at the hotel…I heard Gwen Ifill was holding court and eating buffalo wings…where else would you see that? When I got there she was gone, she’s slick like that. I’m still rolling.. Bright and early on my way the Bud Biliken

    They just got through blasting Atomic Dog…if that doesn’t say a party is ready to jump off, I don’t know what does!

    Just saw a good Michael Jackson impersonator. Glad to see him back at work. That costume has been hanging in the closet for a while.
    8:50 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    It’s on now! Ya’ll need to see some of what I’m seeing. If I told you, you wouldn’t believe it!
    9:08 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    There’s no rain in sight. But it’s hot! Now I have to worry about sweating my hair out!
    9:10 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    Southside Chicago is representing in a big way! I think I’ve already waved to a million people and we’ve just gone 8 blocks!
    9:30 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    Just passed by Steve Harvey in a hot ass suit. The sun is beating down on everybody. Good thing he…uh…shaved his head.

    Weezie would be proud!
    9:52 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    Shouts out to my one white soldier along the parade route–supporting his black woman! Now she’s got to watch NASCAR!
    9:56 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    We’re in the home stretch now and I’m sweating like Paula Abdul taking a drug test!
    10:03 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    who knew spaghetti was parade route friendly–all this and I only saw one kid get snatched up by their mama! Good job Southside! I love you and I always will!
    10:09 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    I think this was the best Bud Billiken parade ever! The marching bands wearing their street clothes, the little fast drill tram girls and their use-to-be fast mamas, the food …
    10:14 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    Just saw a rare thing on this parade route…a black man with a white woman. J. would be soooo proud!
    10:14 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    The Bud Billiken Parade is over and we’re on our way to Giordono’s for 32 pizzas for three people!
    10:50 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    Then to the plane and to Atlanta for Flashback…I’m still rolling.
    10:50 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    Hey ya’ll, even the hardest working has to get a nap sometimes … But I’m ready now. In Hotlanta for Flashback. Not to be confused with hot flashes … that’s something else.

    Just brought out the Legends of Funk, the Bar-Kays, the Dazz Band, Slave. The Ohio Players and Con-Funk-Shun. That’s not just ordinary funk, that’s old funk!
    6:15 PM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    I tried to add up all the ages of the members of the Legends of Funk and my calculator exploded!
    6:36 PM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    Michael Cooper of Con-Funk-Shun just turned the concert out. “Love’s Train” never gets old … Michael Cooper and ConFunkShun did, but the song hasn’t!
    6:51 PM Aug 8th from Tweetie

    They’re singing the theme to Jeffersons and the people along the parade route are joining in!
