The CWR Network, the first Internet talk radio network focusing on key issues and major causes affecting people of color, will launch on Monday, October 16th. The network will feature a variety of programs about social justice, domestic violence, personal finance and wealth building, race relations, diet and nutrition, and more
Little Rock, AR — CWR Media Group announced today the official launch of The CWR Networkwith two days of prime time programming to introduce all of their programs on Monday, October 16th and Tuesday, October 17th from 6:00 PM CT to 8:00 PM CT. Live and on-demand programming for the Internet talk radio network will be featured on BlogTalkRadio which currently receives 24 million listens per month, and on Apple Podcasts (formerly iTunes).
The CWR Network has positioned itself as the causes, issues and life-dynamics network. But, just what is the causes, issues, and life-dynamics network? According to CEO and founder Donell Edwards, “…it is a network that focuses on many of the causes and issues that affect people of color that receive little attention from mainstream network television, cable television, and major newspapers and magazines, such as the intensifying racial tension in America, the killing of unarmed black males by police, the inequities in public schools, generational poverty and financial literacy, the proliferation of gun violence, and health and wellness issues, just to name a few.”
Edwards says, “Although The CWR Network directly addresses issues affecting people of color, it is for anyone interested in changing the status quo, and learning how to affect those changes.”
Edwards acknowledged that famous radio personalities Tom Joyner and Michael Baisden, and outstanding journalists Tavis Smiley, Roland Martin, and Shaun King have been at the forefront of using their platforms to address these issues for years, but felt it was time for a network devoted to focusing attention on these issues.
The CWR Network has plans for special programs like the live virtual town hall meeting that was featured on the network’s program, Donell Edwards: Viewpoints in June, The Crisis In America’s Schools.
The program featured a panel consisting of author, economist, and political commentator, Dr. Julianne Malveaux; noted educational consultant and best-selling author, Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu; past President of the National Alliance of Black School Educators, school board member, and former superintendent and principal, Dr. Deborah Hunter-Harvill; former U.S. Department of Education Assistant Secretary of Communications, Mr. Peter Cunningham; and author, motivational speaker, and former tenured Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum for the Port Washington, New York School District, Dr. Emma Fraser Pendleton. That program provided listeners with information and recommendations about the causes and solutions to the problems in our public schools, from some of the great minds in education today.
The CWR Network has plans for more live virtual town hall meetings to bring to the table stakeholders, proponents and opponents to further the discussion about The Crisis In Many of America’s Schools, an inclusive conversation about How the Diverse Racial Groups In America Can Work Together To Achieve Racial Harmony, What To Do About Gun Violence: Is Stricter Gun Control Really the Answer?, Preventing Police Officers From Killing Unarmed Black Males and Others, and How To Stop Domestic Violence Against Women.
In addition to The CWR Network’s town hall series and featuring programs about social issues, the network also has programs focus on lifestyle or life-dynamics that include a show about relationships, one about world travel, a show about career planning and success, and a show about millennials and millennial life.
The CWR Network is still looking for hosts for other programs to complete its lineup of shows, and there will be announcements about these shows once the hosts for those programs are selected.
Edwards has issued a challenge to hosts on The CWR Network to achieve a listenership of one million listeners faster than any network on the Internet. #OneMillionStrong.
