The ROR is a provocative, candid dialogue with a focus on the issues of terrorism, racial tolerance, the prospect of war and the effect that last week's tragic events had on America and particularly young people. The commercial-free discussion will be lead by nationally syndicated radio personalities Russ Parr & Olivia Fox, morning radio personality, Ryan Cameron of WHTA-FM in Atlanta, Baltimore's WERQ-FM midday radio personality/national TV personality, Egypt, morning radio personality, Marc Clarke of WERQ-FM in Baltimore and Broadway Joe of KTTB-FM in Minneapolis.
Atlantic Records hip-hop recording artist/actor, Fat Joe, Elektra Records R&B artist, Lil' Mo, hip-hop pioneer/music activist/commentator, Chuck D, and Pentagon attack survivor, Racquel Kelley, will be among the in-studio guests taking part in the ROR. Judge Glenda Hatchett, whose nationally syndicated courtroom TV series airs weekdays in 98% of the country, will be participating via satellite from New York. Hatchett previously worked as a corporate attorney with Delta Airlines and supervised the company's Global Crisis Management and Media Relations departments.
"The Radio One Roundtable is really important, because many young people especially are having a difficult time understanding issues surrounding the recent terrorist attacks such as racial profiling and the threat of war. We hope that listeners will tune-in with an open mind, participate in the conversation and walk away with a positive outlook and a better understanding of how they can play a part in rebuilding our nation," said Russ Parr, whose nationally syndicated radio program is based at WKYS-FM in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.
