Tom Joyner Among Ebony's 'Most Powerful'
April 17, 2008 at 5:41 AM (PT)
TOM JOYNER has been named to "EBONY’s Power 150," the magazine’s annual list of the 150 most influential black Americans. His son OSCAR JOYNER, Pres./COO of BLACKAMERICAWEB.COM and the radio show's parent company REACH MEDIA, INC., made the cut on EBONY's "The New Black Power" list which identifies 20 of the strongest up and coming African-American leaders.
"This is the second year for the 150," said EBONY Exec. Editor BRYAN MONROE. "It used to be EBONY’s top 100, but we found there were so many people who should have been on the list that we expanded it and were able to categorize areas, so it’s worked out much better."
The TJMS reaches about 8 million listeners each week and TOM JOYNER is a noted activist, raising money for college scholarships for students at historically black colleges and universities, as well as working to get black Americans registered to vote and protecting their franchise to vote.
