WVON 50th anniversary

This year I was honored to go to the 50th Anniversary of WVON! How amazing! The historic program featured top personalities who shared the WVON Story and featured a performance by Grammy Award winning R&B Artist, Toni Braxton. Many came out to celebrate the city’s pre-eminent African-American radio station marking its 50th anniversary.

“This is an absolutely incredible night,” said WVON President Melody Spann Cooper. “It’s spectacular. It brings tears to my eyes.”

The star-studded gala was a veritable who’s who of Chicago’s African American community, as well as its entertainers, and politicians. And yay me! I was there!
