(OWINGS MILLS – September 16, 2020) – In the world of 21st century media, the voices of Black media face similar challenges as did the Black journalists nearly two hundred years ago. In the Greater Baltimore Metropolitan Area, despite a burgeoning African American population – the voices of Black media nonetheless do their best to keep swinging.
While Freedom’s Journal, the first Black newspaper, paved the way for Black journalists back in 1827 – today we are blessed with newspapers like the Northwest Voice, founded by advertising guru Kenny Brown.
Brown’s paper covers a unique demographic, one carved out just for a brain like his. In all, he covers the northwest segment of Baltimore County from Catonsville to Pikesville. His beat includes Woodlawn, Randallstown, and Owings Mills. For a former ad exec like himself, it’s like a kid in a candy store. Clearly, an upwardly mobile part of the Greater Baltimore area, Brown deals with a lot of news and a lot of businesses. Even more, he has a penchant for Baltimore County politics.
So, be sure to pick-up your free copy of the Northwest Voice Newspaper today. It is one of a very few newspapers serving the Black community every month. His team, including Janet Anderson, works extremely hard to deliver news you won’t find anywhere else.
