CBS 62/CW50 Intern
Dennis Talbert, Chief Visionary Officer of Be-Moor Radio, and Yakeem Tatum, General Manager of Be-Moor Radio, recently launched the nation’s first twenty-four hour youth-driven radio station. It was created to promote positive and uplifting hip hop music for people to enjoy. By honoring the rich aspects of hip hop, they believe it will influence the genre to once again be a driving force within the community.
Be- Moor Radio is operated by youth and young adults throughout the metropolitan area. It runs twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week through its internet and app based features. They are currently planning several “edutainment” programs for the community. In addition, they will be starting a new sports program called “MANCAVE,” which will focus on all sports from amateur to national professional teams in front of a large audience. Lastly, they will produce a free monthly magazine written by young people to their peers.
