She hosts one of the most intelligent shows on Sunday morning, and she moderates Presidential election debates. She is a no-nonsense personality, and heaven knows, we need more like her; we have enough mental poison peddlers out there.

Ms. Muhammad has always been professional in her demeanor and a valuable mentor and philanthropist in her personal life. She has already made an impact in the DMV in her programming for Radio One. Her longevity in the industry for such a young woman speaks to her value, professionalism and capabilities in this industry. I believe she is a natural for this honor.
Kandi Burris – Kandi Koated Ent

She was the first African American Female to win the ASCAP’s songwriter of the year, she’s won Grammy’s for hits that she has written for Destiny’s Child and TLC to name a few, she owns a successful clothing boutique, has a weekly webcast and many other accomplishments. As she says on the Real Housewives of Atlanta “She earned it”!
