Radio One Set To Cover Conventions From African-American Perspective
July 12, 2016 at 12:34 PM (PT)
RADIO ONE will provide its digital, radio and television audiences with coverage of both the upcoming REPUBLICAN and DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTIONS in CLEVELAND and PHILADELPHIA, respectively, from its uniquely AFRICAN-AMERICAN perspective.
The local and syndicated broadcast radio footprint of RADIO ONE and REACH MEDIA reaches over 25 million listeners weekly. EZ STREET, midday talent on WASHINGTON, DC’s Urban Contemporary WKYS (93.9 FM) is a radio veteran and versatile talent who will provide daily live coverage from the convention floor, along with recaps on all of REACH MEDIA’s nationally syndicated morning shows to ensure listeners are aware of the information shared at the conventions nightly. He will also "take it to the street" and interview delegates in addition to residents in both cities to capture the energy of the conventions for our listeners.
Audiences can follow EZ STREET’s behind-the-scene, un-broadcasted interviews from the conventions at NewsOne.com, the premier news and information destination for and about Blacks in AMERICA.
RADIO ONE VP Corporate Communications YAHSIMA WHITE AZILOVE commented: “There couldn’t be a more critical time in our country for Black media to engage in the political process. More now than ever the outcry of Black people continues to reverberate throughout this country for equality, justice and reform. Our entire platform will be represented at each convention to ensure our community is informed of each presidential nominee’s plan to address the issues plaguing AMERICA, especially those that impact daily Black life."
