For Immediate Release: 8/12/2014
Next “Montgomery Mosaic” Radio Show on WOL 1450 AM To Feature Discussion about African Immigrant Health Issues

The featured guest on the County’s next “Montgomery Mosaic” radio show on WOL-Radio 1450 AM will be Emeobong Martin, project manager for the Cultural Competency Center for Health Equity and Wellness at Adventist Healthcare. Martin will talk about how her agency is working to improve African immigrant health through an initiative called Project BEAT IT!

The show, which will air live on Wednesday, August 20, from 10:30 to 11 a.m., is co-hosted by Deborah Milo, host of the County’s “Mosaic” cable television show, and WOL-Radio’s Ron Thompson.

The half-hour monthly radio show was launched in October 2013 to extend the reach of the County’s cable show, “Mosaic: An African-American Perspective” to a broader audience. The series airs live on the third Wednesday of each month, providing interviews with local elected officials and community leaders about topics of interest to the African American community. Since January, the show has featured guests that include County Council President Craig Rice, African American Health Initiative Program Manager Heather Ross, County Executive Ike Leggett and Montgomery County Police Assistant Chief Darryl McSwain.

Although the cable and radio shows include different guests and topics, they are aligned to provide better communications with the County’s African American community.

The radio show is broadcast from the Radio One studios at 8515 Georgia Avenue in downtown Silver Spring. It is also streamed live on http://WOLDCnews.com, and archived shows can be found on http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/exec/media/Mosaic.html.
