Life changing moments left and right is the only way to describe the wonderful press conference for the upcoming 2021 Urban One Honors. I have to express pure gratitude for the honor given to Concert Daily to participate in this massively important exchange. The experience was filled with an enormous positive vibe and we were able to witness the direct beauty, grace and priceless insight from thee Urban One Founder and Chairwoman Cathy Hughes.
(Special Note: This moment was a long time coming, as I was an intern turned Blog Squad Correspondent for Radio One’s WKYS 93.9 EZ Street Show. That lead to the blessing of Concert Daily and then in 2019 of December, I was able to work in production for the taping of the 2020 Urban One Honors. So, I had tremendous joy as I finally was blessed with this moment to get to speak with the media maven herself.)
Also on the panel: 2021 Urban One Honors Co-Host and Grammy Award Winning Erica Campbell, Emmy Award Winning Radio One Media Personality and Moderator for this press conference Ryan Cameron ,The sensational Author, Creative Content Producer and Influencer Jazz Smollett, The Empowering VP Of Programming and Production for TV One Robyn Greene Arrington, The Encouraging Executive In Charge Of Production for TV One Susan Henry, and the incredible Music Composer and Musical Director Kim Burse. The progression of fantastic that flowed from all of these women and the moderator who was a true gentleman, will stick with me forever. It was a great increase to the excitement already developing for this years 2021 Urban One Honors. So, let’s get into the details from my heart to yours:
