NPR, Gospel Today remember Walter Hawkins

National Public Radio and Gospel Today include remembrances of Bishop Walter Hawkins.

How gratifying to hear what’s become my favorite morning news program, NPR’s Morning Edition, provide a remembrance for Gospel Music Great Walter Hawkins.

I’m sure many of urban-oriented morning radio programs also mentioned it.   Will have to listen for that a little later.

Still haven’t found much reported in the mainstream media about this.  Not much time to look as I am about to hurry off to my summer school class.

Gospel Today also posted an obituary on its Web site overnight.

Perhaps the STRONGEST remembrances of Bishop Walter Hawkins will come from the thousands of Tweets we saw yesterday along with the messages on Facebook.
