Atlanta is the epicenter for culture and I’m excited to  jump in and get to work. I want to thank Tim Davies and Derek Harper for their guidance  and look forward to working closely with them both. I also want to thank Colby Colb, 

Vice President of Programming, Urban One for his vision and for providing me the  opportunity to charter a new chapter in my career.”
