*Folks at the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” swear this is not an April Fools Joke.

Contributor Jacque Reid and co-host J. Anthony Brown are said to be engaged, with a wedding date set for May 17 aboard the show’s annual Fantastic Voyage boat cruise.

According to the story from Joyner’s own BlackAmericaWeb site, Brown “announced plans to wed Reid before getting the nod from his fiancé.”

“I didn’t know it had gotten that serious,” Joyner told his Web site, adding that he’s not surprised that Brown chose to break the news while live on the air.

“It’s kind of what we do around here,” said Joyner. “The crew and the audience are like family. And family should be the first to know!”

Reid was most recently seen searching for a suitable beau in the VH1 reality series, “Let’s Talk About Pep.”
