South Florida’s Only Digital News Site Dedicated to Black and Brown Millennials Launches its first crowdfunding campaign with a kickoff event at Puro Bar & Lounge in Miami
Join Hy-Lo News for a live “Can We Talk” Podcast event with Hy-Lo News Founder & CEO, Janey Tate, where she’ll sit down for the FIRST time with syndicated radio veteran from 103.5 The Beat, Papa Keith, for an in-depth and honest conversation about the importance of Black-owned media, Hy-Lo News’ vision, how to do all of this while maintaining a work-life balance and MORE!
This event serves as the official kickoff event for Hy-Lo News’ Crowdfunding Campaign. They will use this time to introduce the community to their brand, their plans to disrupt the local news industry, and why it’s so important for them to serve the community.
On May 19th, they will launch a 45-day crowdfunding campaign to help raise money to improve their content management system so they can create a new website for their membership program. The campaign will close on July 3rd and Tate is hoping to reach and exceed the company’s fundraising goal of $20,000 by that date.
‘This is just the beginning for us and I’m excited about what’s to come. It’s time that Black people take back our narrative in the media and I know from being a reporter in white-led newsrooms that the way to effectively do that is by being in control,” said Tate. “Hy-Lo News is ready to disrupt the local news industry. It’s past time we had our stories told our way and I won’t stop until there’s a Hy-Lo News media outlet in every urban market in the United States.”
