We feel really good about the direction the website is going as we have made some upgrades and added more content for our listeners. First we changed the video of the week to video of the week by conference, in order to show a video from each conference each week and give more exposure to more bands. We will have a video for each athletic conference of the historically black colleges and universities: The MEAC, SWAC, CIAA, and SIAC. We hope this will bring more people to the site each week to see what band from their conference is highlighted.
We would also like to introduce HBCU Buzz to the site. We are using the Entertainment Feed from the buzz to update our listeners on entertainment news that may affect their schools. The Buzz provides the public with news relevant to HBCU campuses ranging from sports and fashion to politics and controversy from the perspective of current HBCU students and several journalists heavily involved in the black community. The Buzz is committed to promoting HBCU pride and unity in order to enhance the black college experience and uplift the perception of all black colleges.
Lastly we have added another sports radio site to our front page, the Heritage Sports Radio Network. For over 100 years Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) sports and the legends they have created have been one of the best kept secrets. Stars like Jerry Rice, Walter Payton, Charles Oakley, Wilma Rudolph and Michael Strahan all trace their collegiate careers back to HBCU’s. A desire to provide national media exposure for this unique sports community and pay homage to past and present stars gave birth to Heritage Sports Radio Network (HSRN)
We have reached out to the people responsible for each site and hope to Chop it up with them in the future.
