REACH MEDIA syndicated morning show host TOM JOYNER paid special tribute to his friend and former CHICAGO radio colleague Soul Train host DON CORNELIUS on his program today. CORNELIUS died yesterday of what police say was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
JOYNER and CORNELIUS got to know each other while they were both working in CHICAGO radio. Joining JOYNER were singers GLADYS KNIGHT and HOWARD HEWITT, writer-producer KENNY GAMBLE, who penned the Soul Train theme song, and actor/comedian CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER. JOYNER also aired some previously recorded interviews with the Soul Train creator.
