Radio veterans Carol Blackman and Silas "SiMan" Alexander spent most of their 40 year careers working at different stations in Atlanta. Yet, Blackmon tells Audacy Atlanta's Maria Boynton that the past couple of years saw she and Alexander working side-by-side.

Blackmon says of working with Alexander on the syndicated Chubb Rock Show with SiMan Baby, "that experience has been an incredible blessing to my life." Referring to Alexander, Blackmon adds, "he showed up and gave you an optimum experience every single time, and not just as a broadcaster, I'm talking about as a person."
