Every one who’s been on this ride with the Tom Joyner Morning Show for the last close to 25 years knows I like to do things Big.

We started big from day one with a live in-house band (Uncle Butchie and the Live House) led by the late Morris “Butch” Stewart and our inaugural guest Luther Vandross, a groundbreaking soap opera “It’s Your World”, and we grew from there.

We kicked off some signature, never been done before campaigns and events like the national Take a Loved One to the Doctor Day, Sky Shows and the Fantastic Voyage Cruise. We’ve never wavered from our original goal..to entertain, to empower and inform and for the next two years we’ll continue to fight the good fight for the causes important to our audiences…voter registration, policies that impact our community, and raising more than $65 million and counting for my beloved Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

As we take things to the next level, personally and professionally, we’ll be in celebration mode with more guests, more parties, and more opportunities to Meet Every Listener. We’ve touched a lot of lives and we love and appreciate the millions of people who are part of the TJMS family. So much has happened since we went on the air in 1994…good and bad…and we all went through it together.

Well, the Party with a Purpose isn’t over, there’s still so much to do and I couldn’t do it without you. Do me a favor and be thinking of the acts and groups you’d like to see perform live, the guests you’d like us to book, the events you’d like us to cover and even the issues you’d like for us to address. Most importantly, send me your favorite moments and memories from the TJMS and we’ll try to go the vault and find them. We want to hear your TJMS stories. We might air them or include them in a blog. Extra points if you send photos or video.

Here’s my promise to you: We will continue to be reachable, relevant and ready to super serve our audience in true Tom Joyner Morning Show fashion. The celebration will be epic as we remember the guests, the laughs, the tears, the bits, the unforgettable moments we’ve shared together…and, of course we’ll be making new memories along the way.

When we go off the air each morning, I never say goodbye…and I’m not saying it now! Here’s to much more good radio!

  5. Повышение квалификации фармацевтическими работниками.

    Любая профессия требует регулярного обновления знаний и повышения квалификации. Особенно если речь идет о представителях специальности, от которых зависит здоровье, а то и жизнь людей.

    Потому, например, для фармацевтов и провизоров в нашей стране разработаны четкие правила, которые требуют раз в пять лет обновлять действующий сертификат. Поэтому курсы фармацевта без медицинского необходимо для фармацевтических работников.

    Обладатели такого документа имеют право в течение пяти лет осуществлять деятельность по специальности. По истечению указанного срока им предстоит пройти обучение на курсах по повышению квалификации.

    Что это даст специалисту?

    – Возобновление права работать в сфере фармацевтики.
    – Улучшение и обновление базы профессиональных знаний.
    – Изучение инновационных технологий в области фармацевтики.

    Такие курсы могут быть рассчитаны на работников как со средне специальным, так и с высшим специализированным образованием. Подобный подход связан с тем, что в вузах выпускники по специальности «фармацевт» часто не получают профильных знаний такого уровня, который требуется для современной фармацевтики.

    Кроме того, у специалистов всегда есть выбор наиболее подходящей для них формы обучения на курсах повышения квалификации. Предлагается обычно обучение: очное, заочное, дистанционное и на рабочем месте, без отрыва от производства.

    После обучения и итогового тестирования в отношении каждого прошедшего курсы выносится решение. Это может быть, как продление действия сертификата, так и присуждение более высокой категории.

  6. Важность повышения квалификации для фармацевтов и провизоров.

    В Москве, как и по всей стране, фармацевты и провизоры повышают квалификацию один раз в пять лет, поскольку именно на этот срок и выдают сертификат, с которым осуществляется конкретная деятельность по специальности.

    Тот, кто прошел курсы повышения квалификации, получает новые знания, в том числе и в области инновационных разработок и технологий. Поэтому сертификат фармацевта получить дистанционно важен и актуален.
    Подобный способ обучения предусмотрен для профессионалов как со средним, так и с высшим профильным образованием.

    Причем учеба может быть не только очной или заочной, но и дистанционной. Учиться можно не только в общеобразовательных организациях. Возможно обучение с выездом специалистов, которые предлагают провести занятия, например, непосредственно в аптеке, и не только в столице.
    Поездка в другой населенный пункт также возможна. Выездная форма предлагается специалистам без отрыва от исполнения непосредственных обязанностей.

    Взаимодействие с региональными обучающими центрами, которыми располагает, например, Москва, для фармацевтических организаций выгоднее за счет снижения издержек.

    Обучение заканчивается сдачей экзамена в виде теста с последующим присвоением определенной категории либо продлением срока сертификата.

    В настоящее время очное обучение в столице ориентировано в первую очередь на московских специалистов.

    Профессионалы из регионов все чаще выбирают дистанционную форму взаимодействия и учебные центры непосредственно на местах. Достоинство дистанционной подготовки в том, что ее проводят в более сжатые сроки, а обходится обучение недорого.

  9. I will truly miss the TJMS. I have listened to this show most of my life time. I’m glad Tom is coming home for the classic but I’m gonna miss standing out all nite for his show Fri morning. Good luck on your new endeavor many blessings to all of you.

  10. TJ – So sorry to see it end –

    I have been listening to the show since it aired in the Philly area. I would listen on my way to work for over an hour. I would stay in the car sometimes just to hear “Its your world”. You, Sybil, Myra J, Ms. Dupree and Jay became my car pool friends.
    I would tell co-workers and friends I was going to go to any Skyshow in philly and the Fantasic Voyage one day –
    After listening for years in 2009 my wife was hospitalize for about a week it look very bad but she recovered but is still battling with her illness. I knew it was time to stop postponing joy. That x-mas I surprised her with a trip on the 2010 Fantastic Voyage!
    YES! it was crazy meeting you at the bon voyage party in Miami (I still the blury pic of you and I at the club 🙂 )- I met Sybil and Myra J during the 1st cruise – prior my wife and I had took about 12 -15 cruises before but the 1st day of the FV wiped out every memory of all previous cruises out. (iam glad we took pictures).
    We were floored by the theme nights – and now 7 or 8 Fantastic Voyages tons of pics/videos later our family & friends are tired of hearing about your cruises but they always ask if we’re going back. – we’ve became friends with other cruisers from philly and the areas of the country.
    – of all the cruises, friends and celebrities we’ve met over the years – I will never forgot walking out of the casino one night and seeing Kid of Kid and Play “being helped by a friend walking” down the hall ok he was lit- i told my wife then about hour later we see him performing on stage a the men of hip party at 2am in the morning WOW he didn’t miss a beat – crazy! then the next day you annouced that he had won the B.Brown award – CLASSIC – and of course I saw him by the pool bar later and told him of the story and he just laughed it all and continued to party with us for a bit..awesome.THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.

    There were some good times with the tjms, but for ths most part I grew disillusioned long ago.Never once did he reach out to me in over ten years I guess feeling what I was trying to do wasn’t relevant enough. Or surmising I would find another way. Now he talked qll that shit about being your brother’s keeper, but he was just another negroe runnin game. Him with his kooky krew, that stale antiquated joke tellin’ j anthony brown, and sybil wilkes had about as much brains as a head of cabbage.I thought during this time this would be a time, a group of Black people who would help one another. Oh well, it was the same shit dressed all over again. Well he’s going off the air and I say, good riddance.

    • What are you talking about?

      TJMS is one of the best early morning shows out there. Radio One moving his show to AM was ridiculously naive. Tom’s show was the perfect blend of music (R&B, rap, old school), comedy, philanthropy and current events. I am a Howard grad and I loved his support of HBCU’s. If he chooses to retire and chill, so be it. I have enjoyed the 29 years I have listened to him and Sybil.

    I was fortunate enough to meet Tom several years go. His fun personality, wit, and infectious humor are totally genuine, not just acts for a radio show. I have been a fan for decades – since the pre-Fly Jock era. There are so many great memories. Congratulations on an illustrious career, the history of such a positive and powerful influence, and a well-deserved retirement. Good luck on the bigger and better things ahead!

  14. Mattie Alexander on said:

    I really have been with you since day 1. WGCI with your turn table brother the late Doug Banks. So oo oo many memories I can’t count. Miss you already but I saw it in your walk at the family reunion that your retirement was around the corner. Love you always, take care Tom. ❤❤💔

    My name is Wanda Oliver and I am a Special Education teacher in Memphis, TN. During the Skyshow, I have won the old school dance contest twice. I always look forward to you coming here for The Southern Heritage Classic. Those SouthWest Airlines tickets have afforded me many opportunities. The first two I used to take my mother to New York City for her birthday. We went to see Nancy Wilson at the Blue Note. My mother said that made her life, not just her day! Another ticket I used to visit my father in San Francisco (after he had a heart attack). The last ticket I used when my ex-husband and his wife called to let me know that my son (who was attending high school in Florida), was experiencing some behavior issues. A few days later, I was sitting in the living room when he came home from school. Needless to say, your generosity and contributions to our community are priceless. I have never attended the Fantastic Voyage (I’m a teacher and can’t take off work like that), but I have heard that it is a lot of fun. My memories will last a lifetime and I’m sure you will be missed by many! I just wanted to share my priceless memories and wish you many more years of success!

    Wow! Morning radio will never be the same. No disrespect to the others but the TJMS has been wonderful and offers such a different format and always have since the very beginning. I have been listening to you since before you started “fly jocking”. Wishing you nothing but the best in retirement and beyond! Thank you for all you’ve done for our community.
