The District’s airwaves just got a little more political with the addition of the “Michael Brown Show,” a new podcast airing Monday nights. According to a press release, Brown’s show will cover a variety of topics ranging from politics to sports and entertainment.

“I hope to help educate our audience on politics and a host of other issues of the day,” Brown told the AFRO in an email on October 7.  “As well as voice my opinions on the latest topics.”

This is not Brown’s first time in the media. He is most known for his time in D.C. Council from 2009 -2013 and his federal conviction for bribery in 2014.  Brown served time from 2014 to 2016. According to his show’s press release, Brown is “turning his sights back to being in the public eye.”

Brown has also had stints on Fox News, TVOne, and HLN. He will bring all this experience to listeners in the nation’s capital.

According to Brown, upcoming guests for the show will include Members of Congress, local political leaders, and experts in law, medicine, and sports and entertainment.

Brown’s show will air on WLVS Radio. According to the station’s site, WLVS Radio is the largest live streaming, online station in the United States, broadcasting in all 50 states and more than 135 countries. Brown is now one of more than 70 on-air personalities.

The “Michael Brown Show” airs form 6 to 7:00 p.m. EST on Monday nights. The first show aired on Sept. 23.

East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, emily.penrod@deweysquare.com. For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
