RADIO ONE/INDIANAPOLIS has named Pastor MICHAEL JONES host of COMMUNITY CONVERSATION, reports the INDIANAPOLIS RECORDER. The show airs from 1-3p (ET) on WTLC (THE LIGHT 1310-A)
The time slot was formerly anchored by the late AMOS BROWN Ill. (NET NEWS 11/9/15)
According to the INDIANAPOLIS RECORDER, newly appointed RVP/GM DEON LEVINGSTON (NET NEWS 3/1) said, "I know AMOS's role can't be filled, so we've actually divided that role into two people. Much of the selection process was done before I got here. They wanted someone out serving the community, and I think Pastor JONES is a perfect example of that. I have not worked with him, but I look forward to working with him, because it's the assumption he will carry on the legacy of his father, who was great to work with."
JONES is the son of SAM JONES, the late civil rights activist and former INDIANAPOLIS URBAN LEAGUE President.
LEVINGSTON added, "I would like to evaluate where we are in the community we serve. We lost a major anchor to everything we did with AMOS BROWN, and we need to make sure we're doing the best we can to touch the people in the community on all levels. People often come to our brand for their education, their news, and more."
