Community Engagement on WCLK

Listen to 91.9 WCLK Saturday, April 8 at 7:30 a.m. for The CheckUp With Dr. Courtney Shelton, MD.  This program provides common sense conversation about medical issues that affect you and your loved ones.

This week on The Local Take I speak with Maria Saporta founder of the Saporta Report, an in depth journalistic news service with a focus on metro-Atlanta. I speak with Maria about several recent reports on the Westside including her conversations with Arthur Blank (Owner Atlanta Falcons) and Dan Cathy (Owner Chick-Fil-A).

On the Saturday, March 25 edition of The Local Take on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I'll speak with Louis Elrod of Better Georgia about HB 515. The bill will redraw district lines in Henry County where the lines were just redrawn two years ago. 

Concerned citizens can contact their representatives up until the end of the month to voice your concerns about this action.  As some of you may know, former Obama administration Attorney General, Eric Holder has spoken out about this new effort of redistricting.

The Local Take: Real Dads Read

Feb 25, 2017

This week on The Local Take we speak with Kenneth Braswell from Fathers Incorporated about their new initiative REAL DADS READ. Research shows that when fathers participate in their children's education, helping with homework, their grades and test scores increase. Fathers play a critical role in the development of  literacy when they model the importance of reading and sharing stories.  

Braswell points out that we have mp3 children living with 8-Track parents and that technology can be challenging.
