    I like what you’re doing here! We’re a citizen journalism site that’s starting a live online show and I’m wondering if you’d like to do some My Urban Report video features.

    Thanks and check us out: http://www.groundreport.com

    Hey A.man.I I saw you on the CNN YouTube Debates responses here in Qatar, and remembered you were on FOX13 in Tampa. I didn’t even know you had left the station; just noticed its was less brothers/sisters on the air on FOX13; just the usual 3. This is a good forum you have going on here; just want to lend my support on your efforts. I will add your forum/blog/website to my links portion once I finish revamping my website after I redeploy.

    Good luck

    Happy New Year, man! You’ll never believe how I found your site… but I am so glad I did and it’s very cool. Keep up the good work, as you always did when we worked together. Email me when you can and let me know what’s going on in your life. Freddie

    Hello, I’ve been reading your site and I love what you’re doing as well as your previous work. I’m a young black, female with a B.A. in Journalism (I start my masters in the Fall) and I admire any of us who’ve actually made it. I’m still aspiring to my full potential but so far it’s been pretty difficult. I was wondering if you have any advice for me, (I’m also in the Atlanta area) or better yet, know of any projects that I can find work on. I’m willing to volunteer/intern at this point. I’m just trying to learn as much as I can.

    I’d be happy to send you my resume.

    Thanks, and good luck to you.

    Hi Armani:

    I found this website by accident and wanted to say Hello. This website is really great and although I haven’t heard your NPR stuff I think it is wonderful that you are covering such an assortment of material. Keep up the good work!
