ALL ACCESS sends good thoughts and well wishes to long time morning talent C.J. 'SUPERSTAR' MORGAN, best known for successful AM drive stints at WHRK (K97)/MEMPHIS and WQUE (Q93)/NEW ORLEANS. MORGAN is in a battle with reoccurring health issues.
Colleague and friend KEVAN BROWNING told ALL ACCESS, "After his 17 year tenure ended in 2007 at WQUE (Q93) in NEW ORLEANS, C.J. suffered a couple of strokes and then occasionally worked some guest shots in NEW ORLEANS for a few years. He then moved back to MEMPHIS and worked at the station that gave him his first big radio break, WLOK. Unfortunately he suffered another stroke. C.J. was #1 for over a decade in NOLA on Q93. He is currently undergoing extensive treatment as he seeks to recover his ability to walk and speak. We've started a GOFUNDME account to assist him and his wife LINDA in taking care of the mounting bills due to all the medical issues."
BROWNING continued, "This account is set up so that every penny donated minus the 7.5% hosting fee that GOFUNDME charges each person to set up this type account that will go to C.J. and LINDA. There are no middlemen or women. The link is http://www.gofundme.com/n213ik.

MEMPHIS MUSIC COMMISION Exec./Dir. JOHNNIE WALKER told ALL ACCESS, "I used to work with C.J. and what has happened to such a hard working guy is just heartbreaking. He and his wife are such good people, things are just so overwhelming for them right now. Thanks to the MEMPHIS MUSIC COMMISION we were able to recently hold a fundraiser to help defray the mounting bills involving all the medical. Sometimes people just need some help and this is one of those times. Over the years C.J. entertained and helped a lot of people in our industry and outside of it. We need to show the love back."
