NBC6/WTVJ will debut "Voices with Jawan Strader" on Saturday, Feb. 3 at 9 a.m., immediately after the NBC6 South Florida Today Saturday newscast (check local listings).
The locally produced weekly half-hour show will highlight the issues that affect black communities across South Florida.
"Voices is about giving a voice to those we don’t hear from every day," said Strader. "We’re proud to present a show that will be devoted to highlighting our South Florida communities. Through 'Voices,' our viewers will have an outlet to see the great things going on in their local neighborhoods and also discuss the difficult issues that affect them day in and day out."
"Voices with Jawan Strader" will provide analysis of social issues impacting the local black communities and will serve as a platform to create connections within the community. The program will feature interviews with South Florida dignitaries, grassroots leaders and residents.
"At NBC 6, we take our commitment to serving our communities very seriously," added Migdalia Figueroa, Vice President of News for NBC 6. "'Voices' will provide a venue for change makers and local residents to engage in conversations that could jump start positive changes in the communities we all call home."
