Ayana Jones of the Philadelphia Tribune writes about how WURD Radio and The Plug, a tech media platform, are covering stories of Philadelphia’s growing Black technology sector.

Jones writes, “Content is produced by former Inquirer writer Hadriana Lowenkron which includes a bimonthly segment on WURD Radio about the city’s top tech news from Black founders/entrepreneurs.

“Lomax Reese said having the opportunity to join forces and look specifically at the tech space allows WURD to tell stories in a more comprehensive and nuanced way.

“‘The other thing that I am really excited about is we have initiative called Lively-HOOD at WURD that is all about trying to use our different platforms at WURD to connect Black Philadelphians up with jobs and career readiness information, small business supports and financial literacy and the tech space is just really ripe for job opportunities, investment and business development and innovation,’ Reese said.”
