1st hour ONLY show. Sharon Wilson-Foster of the National Hook-Up of Black Women was the in-studio guest.

During Café News, I reported that more than 600,000 Americans signed up for insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act in the first 4 days of the new enrollment period despite the Trump Administration’s effort to undo much of the 2010 law. Also, during a speaking engagement at an Axios event in Philadelphia, the former founder of Facebook and Napster co-founder, Sean Parker, admitted that Facebook was created to become addictive.

Speaking of Facebook, Café Talk’s topic was…Are you addicted to Social Media? Sharon and I chimed in and read a few social media responses to the question.
I then chatted with Sharon about her role with the NHBW-Joliet which led to her talking about the upcoming 26th Founders Day event (the Gold Star Gala). Click here for the audio.
The sixth – 12 Saturdays Til Christmas Gift Bag was then given away! I also reminded everyone to mark their calendars for the 10th annual Christmas Celebration Broadcast.
