**************************************************************************************************************************
BOSTON, MA – Louise Carcione, spokesperson for the Boston Politics Radio and TV Broadcast stated earlier today that the broadcast has new advertisers coming onboard and is now expanding its hours.

Boston Politics started as a two-hour political affairs broadcast, then went to 3-hours and now they are a six-hour broadcast, locally, nationally and worldwide.

Hosted by Pastor Bruce Wall, Rev. Eugene Rivers, and Ministers Franklin Hobbs and Leonard Lee, this fast moving broadcast can be heard on Boston Praise Radio and TV starting with news and sports from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM and then from 9:00 PM to 12:00 AM with the Boston Politics Broadcast.

Most of the Mayoral candidates and now some of the candidates for the Boston City Council have appeared on the broadcast.  Calls are coming in from advertisers and people who want to appear on this urban community-centered radio and TV network.

Rev. Eugene Rivers who appears weekly on WGBH with host Jim Braude and Margery Eagan echo, “I love Boston Praise Radio & TV.”  Working along with Pastor Bruce Wall and his crew floats my boat and it is a lot of fun.”

Minister Franklin Hobbs, another co-host of the broadcast is living with HIV and he is both one of the broadcasters and engineer.  He said, “The calls are coming in weekly and our radio broadcast is blowing up.”  People want to talk with all of us about issues such as the violence on the streets in Boston and politics.”  “So many people cannot wait until we come on the air,” said Minister Hobbs.

Leonard Lee is articulate, charming and well known in the City of Boston.  He is the former state director of child and youth violence prevention for the Mass department of public health and also deputy commissioner of public health (state of Connecticut) and long time local community activist.  He said, “Until I started to broadcast, I did not have a voice that could reach so many people.”  He finished, “We are even being heard in Australia, Ghana and Scotland.  Our reach is incredible.”

Boston residents have been looking for an urban broadcast that focuses on the day-to-day issues of the neighborhoods and also brings hope to all people.
