Check out this week’s edition of #UPFRONT Inside Atlanta’s Entertainment Industry. It features one-on-one interviews with the honorees from the recent BronzeLens Women Superstars Luncheon. Crystal Fox, Neema Barnette and Nefertite Nguvu all talked exclusively to me about being recognized for their careers in front of and behind the lens.
#UPFRONT also chatted with Regina Y. Hicks, co-executive producer for HBO’s “Insecure.” The TV veteran opened up about the success of the show and the magic of its star—Issa Rae.
Closing out the show are my red carpet interviews with vocalists Avery*Sunshine, BeBe Winans, Tasha Cobbs-Leonard and Kierra Sheard. All four of them performed as part of this week’s salute to music legend Patti LaBelle at the BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards. The Grammy-winning icon was honored for her career achievements along with the songwriters, publishers and producers of the year’s most performed R&B/Hip-Hop songs in the U.S.
#UPFRONT Inside Atlanta Entertainment Industry is a 30-minute radio magazine that features one-on-one interviews with all of the major players and behind-the-scenes superstars that make Georgia the new “Entertainment Capital.” It airs every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.
