WUVS 103.7 the Beat Announces New Radio Talk Show With a Focus on Empowering Women
This week marks the debut of the Gift of Gab, a new radio show featuring topics and issues pertinent to women. It is particularly geared toward the urban woman and the woman of color.
Host Teresa K. said, “Women are stakeholders in the community. We have purchasing power, and we make so many great and important decisions daily. But are we being heard? This show provides a safe space where collectively, as diverse women of all hues, our voices count and our voices matter.”
The show’s subject matter is gleaned through the host’s surveys and round table discussions with women about what was important to them. Topics to be addressed range from health and wellness to relationships, and from grief to politics. There will be in-studio guests, and audience members may weigh in via phone, Facebook, or email.
The debut show will focus on the importance of self care, and features four women from various walks of life who will share their experiences.
Although the show is geared toward women, all are welcome.
Join in the conversation!
The Gift of Gab airs 2-3 p.m. Wednesdays beginning July 25 on WUVS 103.7 the Beat, West Michigan’s Community Radio Station.
