Look, let’s keep this simple. Memphis’ own Kontji Anthony of WMC-TV, Action News 5, is conceivably the next Oprah and needs you to cast a ballot for her in Oprah’s “Your Own Show” Contest. She’s vying with literally thousands of others who have projected an idea for a new show, and your vote can help.

Go here for a look at Kontji’s audition video (which you can vote for on the spot), and here for more information on what the contest is all about.

The bottom line: Time is running out. She needs the votes by Friday.

Is this politics? It’s an election, ain’t it? And here’s a deserving candidate who beats hell out of most of those on your regular ballot.
