Fox Soul, a new live streaming service geared towards African-Americans, is set to debut this week. Instead of just watching though, Soul is actively encouraging viewers to participate through calling in to speak with the hosts, or to do so through social media.
The free, ad-supported service will have both original content and existing Fox content, and will “celebrate black culture and highlight the real topics that affect the everyday lives of the African-American community through frank and insightful dialogue with local and national influencers.” Think BET for a new generation.
Original programming includes:
On the 7 with Dr. Sean — Hosted by spiritual leader Dr. Sean McMillan, this program tackles the daily hot topics that concern the black community through the lens of unwavering faith and insight.
The Mike and Donny Show — Hosted by Mike Hill and Donny Harrell, this talk show presents frank conversations about the issues that black men and women face today.
One on One with Keyshia Cole — Hosted by singer, songwriter, actress, producer, and television personality Keyshia Cole, this talk show features in-depth interviews with notable celebrities and entertainers and covers issues facing the black audience.
The Tammi Mac Late Show — Hosted by radio personality Tammi Mac, this show is a celebration of black culture through music, performance, and the spoken word with meaningful conversation.
Out Loud with Claudia Jordan — Hosted by Claudia Jordan, this talk show provides the perspective of a black woman on issues surrounding dating, beauty, and relationships.
Fit and Fab with Elise Neal — Hosted by Elise Neal, this is a weekly show concentrating on fitness, health, and nutrition
These shows will air weeknights from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Eastern, followed by two hours of traditonal Fox shows. Since the live content will be produced in Los Angeles, it makes sense the times are geared towards West coasters, but there’s still plenty of time for East coasters to get in on the fun.
