How many years have you been in Atlanta?

“7.”

Why is the work WABE does in amplifying Atlanta vital to our communities?

“This station is vital to Atlanta because we share important stories that affect our community. We also give a platform and a voice to those who wouldn’t otherwise have one.”

What’s your favorite part about being a part of the WABE team?

“I feel like this place is a family. We might all come from different backgrounds and situations, but we all come together in times of struggle, encouragement, and celebration. Everyone genuinely wants each other to succeed at WABE and help one another out.”

What makes Atlanta “Atlanta”? What makes the Greater Metro area special?

“Atlanta is a diverse city with Southern hospitality. We have the hustle and bustle of New York or LA, but we will hold the door open for you and ask ‘how are your parents doing?'”
