Spotlight On Business

spotlight1.jpeg

You are a light for a dull and stagnating town and a dysfunctional and dying race. 287,000 Black people die every month. This is unknown to many. Like Professor Truth so aptly stated, "The average Black person is simply waiting his/her turn to die. They have no real dreams, no real ambitions, whatever life gives they accept. There is little desire to fight for something more, something better." Therefore, always strive to enter universal reality and you find the stars to light your path.

SPOTLIGHT’S CREATORS & PRODUCERS

 

Leigh T. Browne & George M. Sistrunk

 

Description

 

Spotlight is a talk show that invites sole proprietors, public relations personnel, heads of personnel departments, business owners, business incubators, executives, managers, professionals, contractors, independent contractors, entrepreneurs and even government agencies to inform and educate the public about their products, programs and/or services; as well as, provide a medium and platform for their personal story or stories. Everyone has a story to tell. Unfortunately business people and their related stories  rarely get told on the air.

 

Spotlight’s aim is to bring to the listening audience; a candid discussion, whereby the listening audience can learn about people in business, their experiences and some personal history. The public wants to know about the personal struggles and victories that made them who they are now. Their loves, their fears, their wants and desires all put out in the open.

 

Spotlight intends to air 30 minutes a week of  information and insights that are focused on the educational value of the broadcast and the personal aspects of being in business. Spotlight’s content will cover issues and information that are impacting the local, statewide, national and/or the international business community. Spotlight is structured to be the listener’s source for  information and news relative to the business community that is on a personal level.

 

Spotlight’s goal is to reach the widest possible audience and the widest possible market. Those that listen to our radio show are not just an audience, they are our clients, consumers and fans.  Therefore, they deserve to have quality productions whenever they tune in. Spotlight will also include artists, singers, bands, instrumentalist, musicians, filmmakers, writers, directors, producers and/or authors with unique stories to tell. Spotlight has its' own originality, style and quality content. Spotlight  is new on the horizon. It is fresh, educational and informative.

 

Spotlight is committed to diversity, African American, Hispanic, Asian, American Indian and Crossover Audiences and/or any other. Spotlight will provide a positive view of the African American business community, their goals, hopes and fears. Spotlight will reach out to help and serve the people and the businesses that serve the people wherever they may be. Spotlight is providing real substance and quality content to listening audiences; thus, fulfilling a need for high standards and excellence on radio.

Format

 

“Spotlight” will air weekly for 30 minutes on Sunday nights from 7:30 to 8:00 p.m. following Leigh’s Tea N’ Talk and may be re-aired once during the same week. Spotlight will be interspersed with music to maintain the interest of the listening audience. Currently, call-ins directly to Guest are not anticipated.

 

Audience/Purpose

 

“Spotlight” targets the entire area that is being served by the business community to inform them and educate the market environment relative to the services, products, programs and information that are available to the listening audience. “Spotlight” intends to serve as a dynamic platform where both the business and the listening audience can have a direct connection on a business and personal level that benefits the listening audience and the business.

 

Radio Production Extension/Outreach

 

As “Spotlight” matures, we intend to take the show out of the studio and do live shows on location at area businesses.

Community Partners

 

Since Spotlight is still new, Elite Septic Tank Service and Unity International Company, Inc., are our only sponsors at this point in time. However, we have an aggressive campaign for obtaining sponsors, guest and advertisers.
