AOK Concert & Townhall Meeting TV Series
The AOK Concert & Town Hall Meeting television series is designed to focus on local NFL markets and specific activities that professional athletes perform regularly within their hometown communities—activities that are authentic displays of kindness leading to positive social outcomes.
Black Community Organizations
African American culture is filled with service organizations and charitable foundations that remain under-recognized for the good work they do. BNC will highlight activities and events of these organizations that provide positive benefits in our African American communities through our long-form news coverage, bringing national and international awareness.
Historical Black Colleges and Universities
BNC is partnering with the nation’s Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) that will provide access to a rich and diverse pool of academic experts, authors, and specialists who will serve as the network’s nightly on-air contributing analysts. Georgia Dawkins— celebrated author, former NABJ board member, and graduate of FAMU—has joined the BNC team to coordinate activities with HBCUs.
In addition, BNC is building an educational partnership with Sony, Bit Central, VizRT, Harmonic, and the nation’s HBCUs to provide access to hands-on educational tools and training tutorials for some of the most advanced technology in the marketplace. This educational initiative is the first “hands-on” program of its kind in the media industry; it will give aspiring young journalists and professionals in all media fields the opportunity to learn and use some of the most advanced virtual simulation, 4K production, newsroom automation and interactive transmission technology in media.
