Radio One founder Cathy Hughes spoke with “The Tom Joyner Morning Show” today about the prospect of writing a book on her life and pioneering career.
Hughes, who will be the recipient of McDonald’s 365 Black Award at the upcoming Essence Music Festival, said she hopes to get started on the book before the end of the year.
The media tycoon said her new website, Christian5xTimers.com, played a significant part in her decision to share her story.
“Everyone said, ‘Write about your career in Black radio, but it wasn’t until we launched [the site] that I really felt this need,” Hughes said. Christian5xTimers seeks to enjoin Christian believers to pray for peace for a minimum of five times a day.
