The final tote board for the 2011 Crusade for Children. ย The next day, Republic Bank’s Trager family added $180,000 so that the total surpassed the previous year’s. ย The Crusade for Children has collected nearly $60 million since 1954. ย It is considered America’s most successful local telethon because of the amount raised per capita.
Okolona Fire Chief Rich Carlson and Terry create a butthead. ย Carlson is a longtime supporter of the Crusade and his department delivers impressive numbers every year.

Yum Brands chairman and CEO David Novak, center, held his annual Louisville fundraiser for hunger relief, collecting about $400,000 for World Food Programme. That money will buy 1.5 million meals for some of the poorest people on Earth. Novak was recently honored by the U.S. State Department for directing his company to provide community service worldwide. Thus far, Yum Brands has generated over $115 million for global hunger relief efforts. The theme to this October 6, 2012 fundraiser was “60s Flashback Ball.” It was grooooooovy, baby. Once again, I was the emcee for an evening of highlighting the problem, informing the guests, and auctioning items donated by friends of Yum Brands. Generous bidders went overboard for this great cause. Novak wore a long brown wig and rose colored glasses but finally had to ditch them after tripping over his wig a second time. Peace out, y’all.

WAVE-3 news anchor Dawne Gee joined me at the Yum! Founders Day food drive for Dare to Care. Love her. She is exactly the same sweet person in real life that you’ve enjoyed on TV for the past 25 years. That’s my girl. (October 5, 2012)
Terry & Mary had to sing on demand with Matt Jones, Mark Maxwell (Louisville Crashers) and Drew Franklin at the Unbridled Eve celebration. ย This party’s proceeds go to Blessings in a Backpack, feeding needy school children during the weekends when they’re away from school.

Occasionally you will find commentaries on local issues challenging our community. ย The old Bauer’s restaurant near my home sits in disrepair as city leaders, preservationists, property owners, and neighbors all push their own agendas for this dilapidated building. ย I posted this video only to call attention to the blight, urging involved parties to at least clean up the property if, for no other reason, to respect the original owners. ย INSIDER LOUISVILLE articleย  By the way, despite what the article says, I did speak with reporter Terry Boyd the next morning after he left a message. ย He said he would update the post but so far he has not.


Here’s another dimension to my career: endorsements.

Terry Meiners with Little John and Angie Fenton at the first Great Bands Live broadcast in front of the KFC Yum! Center. ย Local musicians compete for prize money and bling from Little John’s treasure trove. ย The hope is to get the winning band enough exposure for a record deal. ย The Whiskey Bent Valley Boys were the 2012 winners.
Big Blue Wrecking Crew: Tom Leach, Terry Meiners, Mike Pratt, and Matt Jones. ย Many people love to taunt me whenever I wear UK gear. ย I attended the University of Kentucky and am a fan but I always cheer for Louisville in their head-to-head competitions. ย Coming from a family of fourteen kids, I completely understand the dynamic of being a little brother.
So many questions, so little time to give the wrong answers. On we go.
