“The Coalition to Back Black Businesses grant helped us maintain our staff and develop additional programs that will ultimately produce new sources of revenue for the station. Additionally, we were able to significantly expand our audience and reach countries outside the United States. Our bi-weekly meeting with our mentor has been eye-opening, resource gathering, and more importantly, informational, particularly as it relates to creating a financially-centered business.”
