The BIG Experience

Blacks In Government’s (BIG) Announces its Partnership with Radio-One inc..

The BIG Experience Radio Show wrapped-up August 29th and we conclude it a huge success. For the first time, BIG partnered with the Radio-One family on WOL 1450 AM, the National Capitol area's premier black talk radio station. The first show went live Wednesday, May 30, 2012, from 10:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m, with all subsequent shows on the same day and time immediately following the nationally known Joe Madison Show. The opening show was hosted jointly by Blacks In Government National President J. David Reeves and Region XI Council President Shirley A. Jones, Esq.


Preparation for each show required much coordination - BIG thanks to National President Reeves, Region XI Council President Jones, the Radio One family, especially Mr. Alex McCamey, who walked us through the process and made each week seamless. A very special thanks to Ms. Renaee Allen, Region XI, Chair, Marketing and Strategic Planning Committee. Ms. Allen must be credited for the BIG radio show. Her insight and vision along with the Marketing and Strategic Planning Committee made this all possible.
