Syndication One, clinic launched on January 30, 2006 as a joint venture between Radio One, Inc. and Reach Media, Inc. is celebrating its fifth anniversary as one of the leading radio providers of programming targeted to African American listeners. During its half-decade as the syndicated radio home of the Reverend Al Sharpton, Warren Ballentine, Yolanda Adams, Rickey Smiley, Cory “CoCo Brother” Condrey, and Bishop T.D. Jakes, Syndication One has gained notoriety for several events, including Al Sharpton’s interview with Don Imus following his “nappy-headed hoes” incident; spearheading the nation’s protest in Jena, Louisiana where nooses were placed on trees at a local high school as a threat to black students; and bringing to light the plight of black farmers, whom for decades were financially discriminated against by the U.S. Agriculture Department. In addition the network has provided live coverage of major events including the annual conventions of the Congressional Black Caucus, the National Black Caucus of State Legislatures, the National Urban League, the Rainbow Coalition, the Black Enterprise and others.
