Cathy Hughes - Part 1: A Media Empire Shero (22:08)

FREE PREVIEW

At the age of eight, Catherine Hughes had a dream that one day she would be on the radio. But for a poverty stricken African American girl growing up during the Civil Rights era it seemed almost impossible. Despite her families bouts with racism and her pregnancy at the age of 17, Cathy never quit on her dream, eventually investing in a local radio station and moving to Washington D.C. to head up Howard radio. There she eventually founded her own radio station, Radio One. During her early years as a business owner Cathy almost lost it all and even had to relegate herself to living in her studio. Through her determination and relentless work ethic, she pulled Radio One out of peril and grew it into Urban one, the second largest African-American-owned media company in the world with branches in TV and internet. She employs over 1,000 people. This segment has sections with low audio.
