Emcee ZIN announces Brother Jesse as his weekly news commentator for the Sound of Soul Radio Show


(Houston, TX- November 14, 2009)--Emcee ZIN has been a one man media powerhouse on the airwaves. Dedicated listeners of his Sound of Soul (S.O.S.) Radio show, on Houston's KPFT 90.1 FM, love his mission of enlightening the ears and souls of the people. The show airs every Wednesday from 1:00pm - 3:00pm CST.

ZIN has decided to add more to his conscious radio arsenal by announcing award-winning journalist and blogger Jesse Muhammad as his weekly news commentator. The news segment, "The Word with Brother Jesse", launched in November and can be heard every Wednesday within the first 30 minutes of the show.

"The collaboration of S.O.S. Radio and Brother Jesse fortifies the bond between written media and audio," says ZIN. "We will now be able to begin to merge as well as broaden the information, music, and technology presence of both of our institutions; while servicing the people with high quality radio programming."

"I am honored to have this opportunity to collaborate with ZIN in this capacity. The time is now for us all to pool our resources and intellectual properties to build powerhouses," says Brother Jesse.

Brother Jesse is providing energetic commentary on impactful news stories from his writings in The Final Call Newspaper along with other pressing global, national and community issues.

"The lack of cohesiveness in the world of African-centered media offers mainstream conglomerates and others outside of our community the opportunity to tell our story and benefit off of our resources," says ZIN.

The show can also be heard on 89.5 FM Galveston or via live audio streaming at www.kpft.org.
