Founder of Anderson Communications, announced that noted motivational
speaker, author and corporate coach Celeste Jonson will be the new host of
its nationally syndicated radio program Focus o­n Women.  In making the

considerable expertise to our efforts to provide vital information to
African American women via their favorite medium, Black radio. 

Focus o­n Women is now in its 17th year of broadcasting, Monday
through Friday, o­n many of America’s  Black radio stations. The program
provides helpful information African American women can use in their daily
lives. Subjects as diverse as male-female relationships, health & wellness,
career development, self-realization, spirituality, effective child rearing
and many others are addressed in a practical manner offering African
American women realistic answers to many of the issues they face.  The
program also features interviews with successful Black women as well as
authors that are producing meaningful books that offer solutions to many
problems.  “Black women face a host of issues o­n a daily basis and they need
a vehicle available to them that will deal with issues that are important to
them,” said Celeste Jonson. “Our goal is not to just to talk about issues
but to offer practical information that will help Black women live happier
and more productive lives,” Ms. Johson added.

The o­nly nationally syndicated radio program of its type, Focus
On Women    has been continually broadcasting o­n leading Black radio
stations.  In addition to the daily radio program, the Focus o­n Women
marketing program includes a website with links to information that Black
women can find helpful (focusonwomen.net). Future aspects of the Focus o­n
Women program will include; newspaper and magazine columns, special events
and television among others. Anderson stated, “Focus o­n Women is not just a
daily radio program but a fully integrated marketing program that is a
perfect fit for brands that wish to target African American women. “African
American women control over 75% of all purchases so they are an important
audience for all brands. It is also a well documented fact that
relationships drive business, so a program like Focus o­n Women will produce
results for those brands that make it a cornerstone of their outreach
program targeting this important audience,” said Anderson.
