The annual Urban One Honors Awards show is scheduled for Thursday, December 5, at MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, MD. The announcement was made by Cathy Hughes, Urban One Founder & Chairwoman, along with Alfred Liggins, III, CEO, Urban One; Michelle Rice, GM, TV One; and Jeff Wilson, SVP, Radio One. The event will air as a two-hour show on TV One, a division of Urban One, on January 20, 2020, the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.
The program will feature a star-studded line-up of presenters and honorees as well as special musical performances and will serve as an annual commemoration of the achievements of black and brown people and broadcast their contributions to our culture and global society.

The televised event will herald the accomplishments of individuals who have made extraordinary contributions in entertainment, media, music, fashion, sports, education, and the community. It will also pay tribute to the 40-year history of Radio One and its extraordinary founder, Cathy Hughes (pictured), who commented, “I give praise and thanks to God from Whom all blessings flow for the opportunity to be of service to my community for these 40 years. I always say that Radio One is my second baby next to my son and business partner, Alfred Liggins. I’m immensely grateful for the men and women who have worked to help make Radio One a success. It started as a single radio station and is now a media family with two cable television networks and various digital media platforms. I look forward to celebrating this milestone and recognizing others who are doing phenomenal work in their industries.”
