DescriptionBrand Newz is a multi-media, multi-generational online portal focused on elevating and celebrating people through presenting uplifting newz and information that focuses on inspiration, education, technology, health, business and more. Brand Newz has partnerships with programs on ABC, CW and Dish Network.
Brand Newz, founded by Christopher "Play" Martin, brings you newz about people and events making a difference around the world and even up the street, people and events that have been impacted in one way or another by the energy of the Hip Hop culture – a culture that has influenced the world for 40 years.
We tell positive stories from your perspective. Whether you’re an established or aspiring artist, community activist, entrepreneur, single mother, hard working father, educator, student or just the average Joe from around the corner – we understand that your story needs to be told. At Brand Newz, we connect our audience – through video, newz reports, social media, images and music – to the insight that Hip Hop has grown up and has a new direction. This direction is a direction of empowerment and hope. Brand Newz is also an advocate for education and has extensive relationships with colleges and universities around the nation, offering internships and professional development opportunities for aspiring multi-media professionals. We extend to you the invitation to join the Brand Newz movement by keeping your ears to the street and sharing your newz with us – whether you are a journalist, photographer, videographer or just someone with a cellphone or video recorder who wants to do their part – we want to hear from you.
