Black Westchester and the People Before Politics Radio Show started in July and August of 2014 respectively and the print edition started on our three year anniversary in August 2017. In such a small amount of time, Black Westchester has heavily influenced the county, public policy, and the elected officials while informing the public in a way that was missing, filling a necessary void. Larger news outlets such as The Journal News (Lohud), News 12 Westchester and Fios1 News, The New York Post and others also follow us and have quoted us for breaking stories that they in turn did follow up stories on. Black Westchester is the voice of the voiceless and has covered many stories that other news outlets often overlooked and in turn followed our lead and reported later. 

Black Enterprise Magazine reported, “Black buying power currently stands at over $1.1 Trillion dollars annually and is on the road to hit about $1.5 Trillion by 2021. These figures have also been documented by the Huffington Post, The Atlantic,, Fortune Magazine and many other respected media outlets. This collective buying power means that nearly $2 Trillion dollars will be flowing through Black American annually very soon, making us a centerpiece for various researchers, marketers, advertisers and other campaigns designed to influence black spending patterns.

With that said, for businesses who do business and want to do businesses with communities of color in the Westchester County and surrounding areas, advertising with Black Westchester, not only makes dollars but also makes perfect sense. We are the voice of the Black Community.

Sponsorship and advertising are also available of our weekly talk radio show People Before Politics Radio, where we have been bringing you Real Talk For The Community since 2014. 

Many Elected officials have advertised in the newspaper and appeared on the radio show while running for office or just to inform the community of what they were doing and to answer questions from our audience including the new County Executive George Latimer, Congressman Eliot Engel, State Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins, State Senator Alessandra Biaggi, New York State Attorney General Letitia A. “Tish” James as well as NYS AG Candidates Leecia Eve and Micheal Sussman, NYS Assemblyman Nader Sayegh,
NYS Assemblyman Candidate and Political Commentator Joe Pinion, Deputy County Executive Ken Jenkins, County Legislators Lyndon Williams, Christopher Johnson, Virginia Perez and the new Chairman Ben Boykins, Peekskill Mayor Andre Rainey and his running mates for city council, Yonkers City Council President Mike Khader, MV Councilpersons, Marcus Griffith, Andre Wallace and Janice Duarte, Former Yonkers City Council President Liam McLoughlin, the Westchester County Clerk, MV City Judges Adrian Armstrong and Nichelle Johnson, Westchester County Family Court Judge Arlene Gordon-Oliver, New York State Supreme Court Judge Christi Acker, Mount Vernon Mayor Richard Thomas, New Rochelle Noam Bramson and New Rochelle City Councilman Jared Rice, Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner, White Plains Common Councilwoman Nadine Hunt-Robinson, Westchester Independence Party Chairman Dr. Giulio Cavallo, Ossining Village Board Trustee Quantel Bazemore and candidates that ran in White Plains mayoral and city council race. Michael Sussman for Attorney General, Mayoral and City Council races in Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, Peekskill, White Plains, Greenburgh and Yonkers, County Legislators, 2 State Senate seats (36th and 37th Districts), county judges, just to name a few because they knew if they wanted to truly reach the community of color, they realized we were the viable vehicle. Almost all of the aforementioned won their races. Several have challenged their opponents to a live debate on our show.
