Phil Paleologos

As a kid, I listened to the night sounds of AM radio on my pink and silver Pacific transistor-6 radio (made in Japan) that picked up the great 50,000 watt clear channel stations around the country. I can still hear the smooth-voiced KMOX announcer, John McCormick, "the man who walked and talked at midnight." I was hooked! Since then, I fell in love and married the airwaves. In the fall of 2015, I will celebrate my golden anniversary, 50 wonderful years in broadcasting. From my early days as a teenager in Hot Springs, Ark., I began a career that took me from my hometown radio station to The Talk America Radio Network. My American Breakfast radio show was syndicated nationally to many major and small markets, one of my proudest lifetime achievements. Another dream was realized when I was named as one of the nation's Top One Hundred Talk Show Hosts by TALKERS MAGAZINE. I'm so grateful for all the opportunities I've experienced in this great industry, including hosting the morning drive on The New 1420...WBSM.

One Person One Vote

The Supreme Court agreed this week to hear a case on who should be counted in determining election districts, which are created based on the "one person, one vote" principle. If the court sides with the plaintiffs in the case, two Texas voters, it could shift political power away from cities towards more rural areas, which would benefit Republicans

Is Uber An Employer?

If there's one thing Uber is adamant about, it's that its drivers are independent contractors, not its employees. But Florida doesn't agree, with the state's Department of Economic Opportunity deciding last week that former Uber driver Darrin McGillis was an employee of the company, and therefore is eligible for unemployment insurance

High Heels Step-Up Injuries

Are high heels a health hazard? High-heeled-shoe-related injuries doubled between 2002 and 2012, according to a new study from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. You could say that injuries from high heels are on the rise! And we're not just talking about blisters!
