Description

Good Day All:

We have an important announcement regarding Terrance L. Bankston, founder of New Jersey's Network of Young Professionals and Chairman of Parent University New Jersey!

Terrance L. Bankston, to join radio cast, as a new weekly co-host, for 'The Eric Dawson Talk Radio Show' , via Facebook LIVE each Friday morning, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

About three months ago, Terrance L. Bankston appeared LIVE as a special guests on "The Eric Dawson Talk Radio Show", broadcasted from the Splash Radio Network, via 94.3FM. Facebook users can view the live stream of the entire interview here: BANKSTON ADDRESSES 'BRIDGING THE GENERATION GAP' & OTHER MATTERS PERTAINING TO THE NEWARK MUNICIPAL, ESSEX COUNTY, and also the STATE LEVELS' of GOVERNMENT.

Since the aforementioned interview and over a period of 14 weeks, Terrance engagement, helped to booast ratings and garner over 25,000 streams and an array of callers, engaging in much needed dialogue. Adding Terrance's voice, has generated new energy around the lack of inclusion, particularly as it relates to many ‘millennials’ and their disconnect in regards to both, their municipal government; and other matters pertaining to the local elected and appointed leadership governing Newark, New Jersey (the state's largest municipality.) Located in Newark, is the South Ward community, where Terrance was reared. Terrance is also a homeowner and proud dad of a middle school student in Newark. The South Ward of Newark is the state of New Jersey's, largest voter base- statewide. Terrance and others who engaged in the dialogue during the interview, mostly agreed that the "old" guard and its' successors, have failed to properly prepare and create professional opportunities for ‘millennials’; and other Newarkers affected by, what some regard as, an obsolete way of running local governments’.

The show's main host, Eric Dawson, a son of the well-regarded leader and a political god-father of Newark, New Jersey, the dearly departed Carl Sharif, acknowledged the great reception received across generational lines, both during and post their interview with Terrance...that he (Eric Dawson, Host) extended a weekly co-hosting opportunity to Mr. Bankston, for the same weekly show.


"This is an exciting opportunity to unite more Newarkers from across generational lines. While also engaging our voices on another platform and in a collaborative effort to reach more people, who are committed to helping us effectively bridge the generation gap... not just in Newark, but throughout the State of New Jersey. 'Bridging the Gap'... in terms of leadership, not just on the local, but the county and state levels' of government as well. Politics, including the lack of political engagement and the lack of related knowledge, are a driving force behind the generational epidemic and social injustices, historically in conflict with sustaining and building upon the dream of Dr. King and the purpose of the civil rights' movements lead by Dr. King and others. Countless others… who have all played a key role in creating opportunities for generations, vs. blocking or prohibiting an organic flow, specifically with regards to leadership development and progression… as they both correlate positively to the evolution of leadership. In 2018, we find even more significant disconnects then years ago, particularly between three-generations of younger folk and many of the "career" politicians presently in power. Nevertheless, since the aforementioned interview, many more voices have spoken up and acknowledged the need to push forth. Continuing the conversation and enabling positive change, is vital to more success and more wins for members from our community. Therefore, we are thankful for this opportunity to collaborate," stated Terrance L. Bankston.

Facebook users can stream the show live each Friday, from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. via this link each week -> Stream LIVE with 'ERIC DAWSON' and
