The Local Take

This week on The Local Take on WCLK we feature conversations from an event I attended in June--the Atlanta Braves Hank Aaron Heritage Week and press conference  held at the Center for Civil and Human Rights. The 2018 honorees included former US Attorney General Eric Holder, Sports Reporter Emeritus at NBC Bob Costas and the Man himself Hammering Hank Aaron along with the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico Carmen Yulin Cruz.

The Local Take speaks with "Chef Extraordinaire" Rick Joyner with the Family Food Fest Atlanta about this year's Father's Day event taking place on Sunday, June 17th from 3pm - 6pm at the Georgia Freight Depot. For the last few years, families join together in celebration of Dads at this event.  There's entertainment, a drumline, kid's zone, and great food.  Unlike other food celebrations this festival provides Dad with a meal, not just a sample. 

This week on The Local Take on WCLK I spoke with former North Carolina Republican Congresswoman Renee Ellmers, who was appointed by the White House as Regional Director of Region 4 of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in May 2017.

In her role, Ms. Ellmers is responsible for the eight southeastern states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, as well as six federally recognized tribes; making Region 4 the largest of ten regions.

This week on The Local Take I spoke with Ian Fennell about Good Sam Atlanta, a non-profit community health center that serves underserved populations in our community. Good Sam is kicking off 2018 with FREE Health Screenings for women in support of Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. 

January 6 at 7:00 a.m. on The Local Take on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I'll speak with Pamela Perkins Carn, coordinator for the Interfaith Children's Movement.  We will talk about their work on behalf of children in the state of Georgia, as the Georgia Legislature rolls into Atlanta to do the state's business in its annual session.
