ASPiRE cable channel to premiere original TV series, 'The ROOT 100' Dec. 5th

(November 22, 2012) The ASPiRE cable network has announced the world premiere of its new original series, THE ROOT 100. The weekly show will be hosted by Emmy-winning journalist and CNN Anchor Suzanne Malveaux. The program is based on content from TheRoot.com's fourth annual list of the 100 most influential African-American innovators of the next generation.

THE ROOT 100 explores the lives and groundbreaking accomplishments of these dynamic men and women. It features first-hand interviews and video profiles of 24 of the list's honorees.

Each one-hour episode features profiles of three honorees, woven together by a common theme.

"This unique and uplifting television series will bring The Root's annual list to a wider audience and allows viewers to learn more about this new generation of black leaders."
