Journalist Tavis Smiley Launched First and Only Black Talk Radio Station
Veteran journalist Tavis Smiley talks about his new venture: the first, and only, Black talk radio station west of the Mississippi.
Smiley goes on to discuss the significance of owning the distribution rather than just the content aspect of broadcasting. Smiley talks about how in this new era of racial reckoning, it is important to tell the stories of African Americans that are not being told or overlooked.
Smiley says, “The problem is that for too long talk radio in this country, and certainly in the multi-racial city believe it or not, has been all day, all night, all white. And something about that has to change. There has be a platform for people of color and other progressive voices to have their say.”
All this and more on “Start Your Day.”
