WVON’s Urban Business Roundtable Author and Researcher Pepper Miller Becomes Host of WVON’s Urban Business Roundtable
Beginning January 9, 2013, Pepper Miller, president of The Hunter-Miller Group, a leading edge market research and strategic planning firm, will begin as host of the Urban Business Roundtable, WVON’s exclusive business feature. The Urban Business Roundtable (UBR) is a first-of-its kind, locally produced half-hour business program that airs three times weekly. UBR uses news, information and trends relevant to Black business from a local, national and global perspective, as well as advice from key subject matter experts to help Black businesses navigate, survive and thrive today and in the future.
Miller has spent her career helping fortune 500 companies effectively and positively market their products to African-Americans, and is an outspoken advocate about the value and cultural capital that Black Americans and Black media bring to the marketplace. In fact, her two books, What’s Black About It? (2005) and Black (Still) Matters in Marketing (2012) are said to be two of the most important books on Black cultural marketing insights.
In addition to hosting the program, Miller and key business experts will host a series of strategically designed workshops, webinars, and town hall events to enhance the overall success of UBR’s mission.
Miller succeeds Alfred Edmond, Jr., Managing Editor of blackenterprise.com as host of UBR. The program airs Wednesdays at 8:30am, with encore presentations on Thursdays at 6:30pm and Saturdays at 9:30am. UBR is sponsored exclusively by Ariel Investments and produced by Ameera Craig.
