Join me in congratulating Natasha S. Alford for being promoted to Vice President of Digital Content. Byron Allens’s Entertainment Studio is one of the largest independent producers of film and television. She got her start as a reporter at WROC TV in New York. Listening to her presentation at TEDx Talk (https://youtu.be/73SA81feIa8) shows how she had the courage to knock on a door that may not be a good idea, considering that she saw confederate flags on the windows. How many of us would have keep going? Not even get out of the car. She did. At that moment remembering that she was a journalist that was put on an assignment. This was a recent assignment, but as dangerous as the world is today, who can blame her if she did not knock on the door? This was the risk of getting a door slammed in her face or someone coming to the door with a gun in hand ready to shoot. Thankfully this did not happen, but this is the reality of the world.
Her journey as a journalist has given her a bigger platform to continue her work and to have the courage to put out content that is needed. Once again congratulations Natasha S. Alford on your new role as Vice President of Digital Content.
