Congrats to MAXX client Bomani Jones on being named to EBONY Magazine's 2015 Power 100 list!
EBONY Magazine has honored the heroes of the black community for over 70 years. The 2015 EBONY Power 100 celebrates this list of inspiring African-Americans.
EBONY recognizes those who lead, inspire and demonstrate through their individual talents, the very best in Black America.
Bomani Jones’ ESPN radio show, aptly titled The Right Time, moved to a better listening slot—from 4 to 7 p.m.—bringing his relatable, cool-brother commentary to a more coveted audience. Jones talks about social issues, including race, even engaging in a kind of grown-man Twitter beef with colleague Chris Broussard about premarital sex. The economist-turned-writer-turned-sports analyst gave his first TEDTalk in November and still finds time for his day job as co-host of ESPN’s TV show, Highly Questionable, and his weekly podcast, The Evening Jones, where he really lets it fly.
This year, on December 2nd, the EBONY POWER 100 event will be held in Los Angeles, California. EBONY will gather to celebrate the 2015 honorees during an exciting and star-studded evening in Hollywood. The night will culminate with a special recognition of the 70th anniversary of EBONY magazine, which was founded in 1945.
