On a recent trip to the US, I had the opportunity to meet actor Leon.
When talking to him I learned that he has spent time in Toronto and was a huge fan of G98.7FM, and the music we play.
I was totally taken back because he was treating me like I was the star? This is the man who starred in a handful of great movies including Cool Runnings, The 5 Heartbeats, Waiting to Exhale, Cliffhanger, and more. The part that really caught me off guard was when he asked to have his picture taken with me! It was an experience that I won’t soon forget and I hope to bring him into G98.7 to talk about his story the next time he’s in town.
Another great person I got to meet on my trip was Nene Leakes.
Though she may be known primarily as a reality TV star, this lady is so much more than that. Beyond starring in The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Celebrity Apprentice 4, she also has stints on Glee and NBC comedy series The New Normal. Besides her work in television, NeNe is an advocate against domestic abuse and has written a memoir describing her own experiences with abuse. She has a great personality and I implore you to support her work.
