It was a great night to remember Thursday, October 27th!

Urban One celebrated music and culture at the fabulous Urban One Showcase held in New York City.

Urban One organized a small industry event for over 200 important advertisers, business decision-makers, and Urban One talent and executives.

The purpose of the evening was to highlight Black music, art, and culture using our platforms.

Special guests including TV One and CLEO TV’s President Michelle Rice, Rickey Smiley, D.L. Hughley, and many of CLEO TV’s talent showed up and represented the Urban One family.

In addition to performances by Grammy Award-winning artist Alicia Keys and Rapper/Poet J. Ivy, some Reach Media personalities also hit the stage!
