Hey, empathetic bald man Montel Williams is "getting his own national radio show through a multi-year deal with Air America Radio," which is kinda like Maury Povich getting a "national" column in Steppin Out.

Ha, joking, Air America! We're just saying it's maybe not the biggest thing Montel has ever done...

For 17 years, Williams was host and executive producer of The Montel Williams Show, one of the longest running daytime Talk shows in TV. He is currently launching a multimedia business based on his "Living Well with Montel" brand. He's also published eight best-selling books.

Bonus benefit: there is once again at least one black person working in the media. That was quick! USA! [Mediaweek]
