posted by Corine Gatti

What does it mean to you to dream again?

IA: To me it means to takes life’s challenges and run with them. Though your plans may not turn out the way you want them to you can still use those obstacles to strengthen yourself to be able to find a new passion in something else.

IA: You learn to become strong and to never let anything get you down. You can adjust to what life throws at you and it can help to build you into the strongest person that God wants you to be.

Marfan syndrome does not define you, what did you do to overcome this and not let it define you?

IA: I just kept my head on straight and didn’t let it hinder my life. I used it in a positive way and now I’m able to inspire people around the world because of it. I don’t see Marfan syndrome as a crutch in my life but as a blessing in disguise.

What is the number one question people ask you?

IA: The number one question I get is “How tall are you and do you play basketball?”

How did you allow God to help you dream again?

IA: I gave my heart to him and let him carry me to the path that he wants me to walk. My mom always told me it’s one thing to have faith but it means something really different when you trust in HIS plan for your life.

The Isaiah Austin Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides support for the awareness and research of Marfan syndrome and those affected by it. Learn more about this amazing man and his organization in Dream Again.

YouTube Preview Image

Charlie Brown and the gang have a whole new look in the first-full length trailer for the “The Peanuts Movie”, and it’s absolutely fantastic. We promise, you’ve never seen them quite like this.

From 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios, our first look into the film shows Charlie Brown in 3D form, determined to change who he is and become a winner, not only to prove that the underdog can be somebody but, but to impress the new girl on the block too.  Charlie embarks on an epic journey with some of our favorite Peanuts characters and we couldn’t ask for more.

While the 3D animation gives Charlie Brown and his friends a very different look, the story stays true to the original cartoon, something Peanuts fans will love.

Get a sneak peak of the CGI versions of Charlie Brown and his friends in “The Peanuts Movie” trailer featured above, and don’t miss the movie, in theaters November 6.

‘I’m Tired of Watching America be Led by Lunatics’

posted by Corine Gatti

Conservative talk show host Kevin Jackson was signed to a national syndication deal by USA Radio Networks and will launch July 20th on USA Radio Networks XDS Channel 3. The Kevin Jackson Show will air weekdays from 12 noon to 3 p.m. Eastern Time.  Jackson said he was exhausted from the labels that conservatives were given, and the image needs an overhaul.

“I’m tired of watching America be led by lunatics. We need new messengers and leaders, people unafraid of being called names. For far too long we’ve allowed Liberals to label us. It’s time the truth comes out about who the real racist, misogynist, and ‘otherists’ are, and it’s certainly not conservatives.” Kevin Jackson

Jackson is looking forward to taking on conservative talk-show giant Rush Limbaugh, explaining that the country needs something different.

Excited would be understated.

“I’m happier than a tornado in a trailer park to be part of the USA Radio Networks family, and can’t wait to take on Rush Limbaugh,” Jackson said in a press release.

“Conservative talk radio has needed new blood for some time, and I’m just happy to know a vampire. America will get something different, and I couldn’t be more excited to bring it.”

To carry THE KEVIN JACKSON SHOW, contact USA Radio Networks Affiliate Relations department at 844-500-0812 or info@usaradionetworks.com.
