A nationally-known syndicated radio host came to Meridian Friday seeking mentors.
The Michael Baisden Show airs daily on Kiss 104 FM. He's on a 73-city tour to recruit one million mentors.
"I'm very happy with the turnout. The question is whether it's going to be maintained, which is why we wanted to continue this tour over a course of months," said Baisden. "And we want to get back on the tour in September 2010, because this has to be kept in everybody's mind because we are losing these kids."
Baisden hosted his show from Meridian. He also sponsored a forum on mentorship at Meridian High School Friday evening.
