This feels so foreign posting on here. I have barely touched this site since May of 2015, when after 4 years, I ended the Troy Show.  I wanted to write a personal message on here to let people know that archives are still available. Just search for a specific topic or guest and it will pop up.

I highly encourage you to check out the interview with Palmer Williams Jr and of course the President of OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network Sheri Salata. These highlight the best and worst part of The Troy Show. At its best it made you feel better about yourself. At its worst it served as a way for me to try to be Oprah Winfrey.

Its hard to make a portfolio of my work because I am already over this chapter of my life. I want to do bigger and better things. I don't look back.

On to the next phase!

This past summer before Adele blazed the charts and before Justin Bieber got nude, another headline sparked the world. Taylor Swift and Rapper Nicki Minaj got into a little tiff. Nicki was upset that black artists were under represented at in the "Video of The Year" category at the MTV Video Music Awards. Taylor clapped back on Twitter creating a firestorm.

The issue was bigger than Taylor Swift or Nicki Minaj. At the heart of it, there is a big a racial divide on Twitter as their is in the real world. 

Thanks for clicking.

After 4 years, I have decided to end The Troy Show.

Literally every week of my adult life I've spent with you. I was podcasting before it was cool! However the time has come for me to move on and do something new in my life.

I have truly enjoyed every moment that I've shared over the past few years. I have grown so much. I hope we all took something away from this experience.

I will keep the site up for those who want to listen to past episodes or read certain things.

I want to thank all the guests that took a chance on me. Sheri Salata the President of OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, WWE Hall of Famers Booker T and Trish Stratus, producer of the daytime talk show "The Real" Sally Ann Salsano and so many others. Your stories inspired me.

For those of you who did listen, whether it be once or every week, It meant the world to me! I sincerely appreciated your time.

There comes a time in life when you have to let go. The pain isn't in the letting go, its in the fear of the unknown. I don't know whats next for me. However, I do know that I will be OK.

They say the only prayer and words of wisdom ever needed are Thank you.

So from the bottom of my heart

Thank you,
