Black Enterprise, Central City Productions launch show highlighting black women leaders

(October 20, 2014) Beginning October 25, 2014, a new, weekly half-hour national network syndicated show, "Women of Power," will air every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. on the TV One cable network. Produced by Black Enterprise and Central City Productions, the series will showcase accomplished black women entrepreneurs, CEOs, moguls, and political leaders.  

The Women of Power television show kicks off with host Caroline V. Clarke's (pictured) exclusive and intimate interview with actor and Blackish Co-Star Tracee Ellis Ross. Viewers can also watch the program each week on Black

The series builds on the popularity of the Black Enterprise Women of Power multimedia franchise, best known for the annual Women of Power Summit. The Summit is America's preeminent leadership conference for women of color, set to be held at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort and Spa in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, March 2-5, 2015. The premiere of Women of Power is an exciting milestone as the Women of Power Summit celebrates its 10th anniversary.

"After celebrating our 10th year partnership with Black Enterprise Magazine under the banner of New Millenium Media Partners, I am pleased to announce the transition of the "Black Enterprise Business Report" television show to our brand new, first run "Women Of Power" half -hour weekly lifestyle television series," said Don Jackson, chairman of Central City Productions.

The "Women of Power" show continues the 25-year-history of the television series which was originally the "Minority Business Report", before becoming the "Black Enterprise Business Report" and now to the "Women Of Power" series."

"Our other weekly series, 'Our World with Black Enterprise', will continue under its current title as the longest running black news magazine show on television for over 30 years," Jackson continued. "It will now incorporate more items of interest from the former 'Black Enterprise Business Report' series."

Women of Power will provide viewers with intimate, in-depth looks into the lives of some of the world's most accomplished women, such as tennis legend Venus Williams, Xerox Corporate CEO Ursula Burns, crisis-management expert and Scandal inspiration Judy Smith.

The show boasts weekly features including Power Suite, Power of the Purse, Luxe Life, Power Forward and Woman-to-Woman, with special features on entrepreneurship, finance, celebrity interviews, health and relationships and work-life balance.
