Join us for the Black Blog Awards taking place on Friday, Sept. 21, 2012 in Washington, DC
With the rise of Black bloggers and Internet radio stations, much of the news that is passed over by mainstream media is suddenly getting to its intended audiences. Clearly put, Black bloggers are changing the media game. Black newspaper and magazine readership is significantly down, though experts like the Historical Black Press Foundation point out that is mostly because the Black-owned media industry failed to adequately market its audience.
But no one can deny the growing importance of Black blogs, podcasts and digital media offerings. That’s why the Black Blog Awards were created to foster competition, improve the quality of content and crown annual leaders chosen by the industry itself.
