(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.

  • It's here – the sequester. President Obama dropped-by the White House briefing room to tell the country forced budget cuts are set to go into effect. A massive chunk of $85 billion will target everything from defense to education.  The cuts will trigger furloughs and weaken government worker paychecks. A morning meeting at the White House between the President and House and Senate leaders bore no solution. Because of that, Congress is taking the bulk of blame. CNN Radio caught-up with Americans expressing their frustration:

(CNN) - Dear Rev Run and Tyrese:

Thank you both for agreeing to be interviewed on CNN Profiles.

Tyrese, as I mentioned, when the producers at CNN's guest bookings department excitedly told me we could get you for CNN Profiles, I said "Who's Tyrese?"

I asked a lot of friends and colleagues if they'd heard of you. I don't know if the answers represent the broader reality, but they pretty much broke down along racial lines. Most of of my white friends didn't know your work. My African American friends did. Especially the women.
