News for Monday, November 24th, 2014

  • Robert Battles of the local weekly public affairs radio program titled "Pass It On" (for WGOK-AM (900)/WXQW-AM (660)) and the local weekly public affairs TV program titled "Rise and Shine" (for WALA-TV) became a member of the Mobile County Board of School Commissioners last Wednesday, November 19th, after being elected to it on the Tuesday of November 4th (both programs were usually broadcast on Sunday, with "Rise and Shine" between 6:30 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. and "Pass it On" between 3:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.)
  • A registered nurse and author from Mobile named Paulette Horton used most of last week's edition of "Pass It On" to promote and give away copies of her most recent book ("Treasured Memories: the Beginning of an Era, Mobile, Alabama's Historic Black Baptist Churches 1806-1945") while substituting for Robert Battles as its host (she told listeners of this edition of the program he was was "out enjoying" events involving former students of a former school in Mobile called Central High School since he was one of its students).
  • Her giveaway involved her asking 17 questions about the histories of certain churches in the broadcast area of WGOK-AM/WXQW-AM along with a question about the name of her primary job (a registered nurse) for listeners of the program to answer through telephonic audio recordings (she gave them a specific telephone number for them to use for answering the questions).
