New podcast alert!!
Since the beginning of the Brilliantly Black initiative, iHeartMedia Chicago has put the spotlight on different Black owned businesses every week. Radio Online reported that each station will encourage listeners to visit its website and enter keyword "brilliant" to get more information about black-owned businesses, restaurants and community resources. The available information includes health and wellness businesses, fashion and beauty, community and faith organizations, local businesses, restaurants and more.
"I am so proud of our team who created this grassroots opportunity to support black-owned businesses," said iHeartMedia Chicago President Matt Scarano. "Everyone should do their part in supporting the black business community. I am thrilled we can use all of our stations to impact and inform Chicagoland about this much-needed community resource."
Now, you can hear directly from the business owners on the new Brilliantly Black podcast, hosted by yours truly!
Episode one debuted this past Friday, and we will release new episodes weekly. Look out for new episodes every Friday!
