Thanks to the Baton Rouge Area Association of Black Journalists for inviting me to participate in their annual scholarship luncheon.
The event raised thousands of dollars to provide scholarships for young people in the community.
I had the chance to serve as the keynote speaker after being invited by good friends Todd L. Sterling and Michelle McCalope.
I also had a chance to visit with old colleagues and friends.
Here are some of the pictures I snapped in my hometown!
The Factor would like to send condolences to the family of Francis Grayson.
I’m told the General Manager of the Hotel Indigo in Baton Rouge died this Friday.
What’s so shocking to me is that I just met him Wednesday when I stayed at the hotel.
He and I reminisced about my earlier days on Baton Rouge television.
He also told me how he got such a kick out of seeing my infamous Youtube video.
Grayson is described as an ultimate professional, community involved, and just a good person.
The business executive was also instrumental in the revitalization of downtown Baton Rouge.
I would like to send prayers to his family and closest friends around the country.
The cause of death is not immediately known other than he’d been dealing with health issues over the last few months.
