Special Interview with Carl West – CEO of MG Media & Founding Managing Editor of TBT News Service

17 Jan

Carl West - MG Media & TBT News Service

Carl West, CEO of MG Media & Founding Managing Editor of TBT News Service is my guest this week. I wanted to interview him for a few reasons. First, he was so committed to his dream of having a hip hop magazine that he left the security of corporate America to make it happen. Second, he has a been a great support in my endeavors. And third, I needed a male voice on my site, and he was the closest person in the writing world I had.

Listen to my interview with Carl to learn about good things he’s done, great things he’s doing now, and even greater things to expect from him in the future. He’s not just an avid business man; he has a heart for the community. After listening, be sure to head over to TBT News Service and sign up for his daily updates.
