I could not have asked for a better platform to speak greatness about and into my community. I’m confident our content will live up to its purpose and tagline, ‘Our Voice, Our Truth.’ ”
Fox Soul’s lineup combines the live, interactive, original programming of On the 7 with Dr. Sean, The Mike and Donny Show, The Tammi Mac Late Show, Out Loud with Claudia Jordan, Fit and Fab with Elise Neal and One on One with Keyshia Cole, with the locally produced Fox TV shows that are directly connected to the urban community, including Later with Leon, The Q, Dish Nation, The Isiah Factor: Uncensored and Street Soldiers with Lisa Evers.
