Serving Metropolitan Detroit Since 1944

It's time to celebrate. Happy Anniversary to me!

This week marks my 18th Anniversary as owner of the Telegram Newspaper. What an accomplishment for me and my family! On Monday, June 1st as I thanked God for his continued Favor as I stepped out on being an entrepreneur 18 years ago. As any small business owner knows, if you don't work... you don't eat. I have never looked back. (Well not really. I did look back once early on when my finances was negative and I remembered those guaranteed $2,000/week checks that I used to get in Corporate America) But I pressed on, cut expenses and started to grind harder. I knew I would be successful because God is in control.

I would like to say Thank You for every one of the advertisers, subscribers and supporters of the Telegram News over these 18 years. Whether you bought one paper for 50 cents or just called to say thank you for covering that story, I appreciate you. My family, my extended family, the communities we serve, my friends and my haters have all made me a better person. I appreciate you all.

The time since the pandemic has been a learning experience and we are still standing strong. So celebrate with me from now until August when the Telegram News will reach its 80th year of publication. We will have a Gala on August 3rd at Lincoln Manor, so Save the Date. More information will be coming to you soon.

If you are reading this, you are the reason that this African American Woman owned media outlet has survived.

Thank you for the love and support.
