The Congressional Black Caucus has struck a deal with American Urban Radio Networks to deliver a weekly radio message to the networks' affiliates.
In a statement, CBC Chairman Elijah E. Cummmings said, "This unprecedented collaboration between the most influential caucus on Capitol Hill and AURN, the only African-American owned network radio company, gives the CBC a tremendous opportunity to discuss important issues on a weekly basis and be heard by AURN's 25 million listeners."
AURN called it an historic alliance. The program will begin Labor Day, Sept. 1, at 8 p.m.
The caucus has 39 members of Congress representing 20 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. Virgin Islands. The announcement was made in advance of the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Weekend.
