Malik Yoba is co-hosting Radio One’s St. Louis Radiothon for Ferguson Relief with Nick Cannon on Monday, January 19th on MLK day, Monday, January 19th, from 12pm to 7pm CST .
Radio One St. Louis Old School 95.5 has joined forces with the St. Louis business council to raise funds for the businesses that have been impacted by the civic unrest in the community. Yoba, a longtime activist is also in St. Louis working with the Urban League Save Our Sons program. That program provides job training for underemployed and unemployed folks.
A screening of Empire, Yoba’s new show, raised an additional $6,000 for that program.
“It’s real down here,” Yoba says. “So you gotta be involved.”
Of Empire, he says “It’s like lighting in a bottle. Back on Fox with something that’s important to Black folks.”
