Black TV Shows and personalities on Air in Boston.

In 2017, there are more Blacks and people of color of Boston area television stations on air than perhaps at any time before, I think. Check me on that and let me know. On local TV news shows I see a diverse mix of female and male studio and field reporters covering the stories. Don't you? Let us know.

The National Association of Black Journalists Turned it Up

In 2014, a convention was held in town. The NABJ short for the National Association of Black Journalist brought 6,000 members to town fo ran annual convention. It was a notable event. This webmaster was invited to a unique private meeting by with black media investors and it was quite fruitful. The organization also asked for local resource contacts. We referred PRESS PASS TV who went in to do some reporting spots. They also took our suggestion to seat a professional colleague on a panel. Thank you NABJ.
