Season 2 of ‘More Than That with Gia Peppers’ Returns on Over 100 Black-owned Radio Stations

Entertainment Journalist Gia Peppers utilizes her voice to raise awareness on current social, cultural and global issues.

NEW YORK--()--‘More Than That with Gia Peppers’ pioneered a collaborative way for brands to equitably engage with the Black community across the country by reimagining the supply chain in favor of Black-owned businesses while celebrating new conversations. The series which quickly became more than a show, is now a place where Black stories resonate, listeners laugh and even hear something that could change their life or trajectory of their community.

The award-winning first season initiated a sonic journey across Black America with host Gia Peppers and known guests about topics impacting and inspiring for Black listeners. In its inaugural year, the show and supporting marketing resulted in more than $4 million invested into Black-owned media.

Dentsu International, in partnership with One Solution, the award-winning division of Urban One, continues with an all-new 10-episode installment for Season 2 on Urban One, Spotset, American Urban Radio Networks, and Café Mocha Radio – a new partner this year. The series, exclusively distributed by Black-owned and operated businesses, will also live as a podcast – available on all major streaming platforms.

On hosting this series, Season 2 Executive Producer Gia Peppers said: “The goal of season 2 is much like the first season’s: to shine light on the issues Black people face in America, as well as inspire people and corporations to use their voices and resources to help us all move forward to a more equitable future. In our first two episodes we got to talk to the legendary Master P and business mogul Angela Simmons.”

On writing this season, Writer & Creator Kai Exos added: “Tapping into what motivates us to make positive change as a people is how we take collective action. This season, it’s all about motivating us to listen closely to our ancestral traditions and form new pathways for economic empowerment and Black excellence.”

Simmy Bhargava, Executive Producer at dentsu good said: “It’s so energizing to work with such an inspiring group of people, all coming together to make the show a reality. Everyone has a real passion for the show, and I think the success of season 1 is a testament to that. The power of collaboration between all of the diverse groups involved supporting our stories and the Black community.”

Ma’at Zachary, Executive Producer at OneX said: “As the architects of bringing concepts to reality, through the art of storytelling, every contributor uses their craftsmanship to powerfully project real-life experiences and guide the multifaceted narratives of our community. I expect that season 2 will continue to reflect the heartfelt value we place on access, resources, and opportunities for people of color.”
