An Interactive, Fast-Paced, Radio Program Connecting Youth in Africa and the United States

On this fresh, fast-paced show, co-hosts located in the U.S. and in Africa talk to teens and young adults about trends, lifestyles, health, entertainment, and other issues touching listeners’ lives.

“This show is fun and interactive," says co-host Jackson Mvunganyi. “We give our listeners a chance to say what they think about a range of topics. I’m thrilled to be part of such a dynamic, cutting-edge show.”

A native of Rwanda, Jackson has a bachelor's degree in multimedia development from the American University in Washington D.C., and a master's degree in Information Management from the University of Maryland. Jackson has had a multi-faceted broadcasting career so far, working in both radio and television, in Africa and the United States. Jackson also volunteers his time with African communities in the diaspora on issues affecting the continent.
