Celebrating a centennial – my favorite story from this week’s segment is about a great-grandmother from Houston who turned 100. I am always in awe of people who have lived so long and have seen an incredible amount in their life. Their experiences are so valuable and this great-grandmother – is a hoot! Also back in the news – R. Kelly. Are those cult allegations affecting his tour? Plus, actress Keke Palmer gets real about the pressures from society to maintain a certain image.
My goal with Brittaney’s Beat has always been to give a personal, fresh take on the stories I’m talking about. This week’s topics really hit home for me. I started off with Prince William and Prince Harry’s final phone call with their mother, Princess Diana , as revealed through their new documentary on her life. Then, I hit on some interesting allegations against Usher. I wrapped up with the MTV Video Music Award nominations, specifically how one of the nominees, Alessia Cara, stood out for me. Check it out below!
I’ve always loved everything about the communications and journalism field, whether it’s having the opportunity to tell Houstonians’ stories or seeing what new aspect of the industry I can dive into.
That’s why I’m excited to announce that I’m now part of the weekly radio show Medulla Talk. The show itself airs on Houston’s Afrovibes Radio, a growing online station that live streams content 24/7. Medulla Talk explores a variety of different topics like education, relationships, and societal issues with the goal of driving conversation and getting people to not only think, but meaningfully engage.
My segment, Brittaney’s Beat, comes in with the pop culture/entertainment angle. It’s a fun break from tradition for me in that I can really insert my voice into these pieces and give my take on some of the most-talked about stories in that genre. You can listen to the first segment I did below. I’ve also created a playlist on my YouTube page.
