Morning Energy

On April 8th 2024, many people around the world  witnessed a total solar eclipse which left some questioning how solar eclipses affect the Earth environment.  Some of the environmental changes observed during solar eclipses (particularly in the path of totality) include: temperature changes, a change in wind speed and a change in the earth’s atmosphere.

The 2024 solar eclipse came on the heels of Earth Month which is an extension of the Earth Day movement.  The first Earth Day celebration in the United States was held on April 22, 1970 as a grassroots movement to raise awareness about environmental issues and environmental justice.

On Morning Energy we are going to spend time exploring environmental issues to include: exploring the history of Earth Day, learning about top environmental concerns, and sharing every day tips on what we can do to improve the quality of our environment.

Join me, Renna on Friday from 4am to 6am for a special musical journey about this topic.

I found out about WMNF through an outreach table that was set up at Sweet Water Organic Farm during my first visit there in 2012.

I had never really heard much about community radio stations at that time and became extremely intrigued as to why a radio station would have an interest in attending and/or hosting events in the community.

As I began to learn more from the Volunteer Coordinator at that time, I decided that the station would be a great fit for me in light of my background in communications and my ongoing interest in helping others.

One of my first volunteer assignments at WMNF was community outreach. I thought what better way to reach out to the community than in the same manner that I felt WMNF had reached out to me. After about a year of doing out reach service, I decided to try my hands at voicing promos/drops since I still had a passion for the arts. I also began helping out during the marathons.

Consequently, while volunteering during one of the marathons, I was asked by a former host to consider being one of their co-host because he liked my personality and the sound of my voice. I had never done formal radio work before, although I DID have a communication degree, however, my interest while attending college at that time was more towards television than radio. Nonetheless, I agreed. In addition to being a co-host on that show (The Damn Jams )(Hip-Hop) , other shows that I have co-hosted on while volunteering at WMNF are: Thee Righteous Temple of Hip Hop (Christian Hip Hop), The Early Bird Wake Up Show (Country), Blues With A Groove (Blues ), Mellow Music Encounters ( R& B and Blues) and Kingston 12 (Reggae). However, In February 2014,

I was thankfully given the opportunity to host and produce my own show.... MORNING ENERGY..... and it has truly been an AMAZING experience and journey for which I will always be thankful for!!!
