The Chicago Defender Launches A Podcast

The Chicago Defender announced today that it is launching the Chicago Defender Inside Black America Podcast on Thursday, May 26. The Defender, celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, becomes the first Black newspaper in the nation to take advantage of this new technology.

Every week, Chicago Defender staff writers and editors will interview newsmakers, book authors and other subjects, taking the content that used to be limited to the newspaper and putting it in audio form. The Chicago Defender will also develop podcasts in conjunction with its 100th anniversary, interviewing longtime staffers, former writers and editors, as well as others in Chicago and abroad who have been influenced by the nation's most historic Black newspaper.
