Which Tom Joyner Morning Show (TJMS) Personality Just Got Nominated for an Emmy?

rfocus.orgAs I was in my car this morning I was listening to the Tom Joyner Morning Show (TJMS) .  Sherri Shepherd was bringing the funny alongside her fellow comedian/actress, Kym Whitley.  Then out of no where, Kim Whitley drops the news that she has received a Daytime Emmy nomination for her role on the web-based series The Bay. Whitley picked up the nod for “Outstanding Supporting or Guest Actress in a Digital Daytime Drama Series” for her role as Big Candi.  

In true Kym Whitley fashion, when Sybil asked her to give the listeners a little dose of why she received the nomination, Whitley went into character delivering a classic line from the show when she seductively whispered, "Do you like Candi?"  It was funny but it was one of those moments you had to be there.  

We just want to congratulate Kym Whitley for the nomination.  Nice!

The Bay (a.k.a. The Bay The Series) is a soap opera web series that premiered on September 15, 2010 at Blip.tv. Starring Mary Beth Evans as wealthy socialite Sara Garrett, the series was created by Gregori J. Martin. It is set in the posh seaside town of Bay City, where the privileged residents are entangled in one scandal, betrayal or love affair after the other.

The Bay was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in 2012 for Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Class Short Format Daytime, won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding New Approaches Drama Series in 2015, and a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Digital Daytime Drama Series in 2016. The series was nominated again in 2017.
