Love is at the core of the Black Women In Radio (BWIR) movement, says Founder and CEO Felesha Love. What started out as a #BlackWomenInRadio social media campaign to preserve Black radio culture has become a growing phenomenon for women.
Since its conception in May 2017, women throughout the country have echoed appreciation for the platform serving as a catalyst for America’s Black female radio personalities and the communities they serve as an opportunity to see themselves in the eyes of one another. Now is a critical time for the Black community as radio personalities are sweepingly losing jobs in large numbers. As Black voices are silenced, so goes opportunities to serve authentically for local and regional interests.
