Echo News T.V. L.L.C. Annual Project Progress Report 2023 It's That Time Of Year Again!

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone who enjoys reading, posting, subscribing, and sharing the Echo News T.V. L.L.C. articles, plus BlackPRWire Press Releases. It is a privilege to report your stories. Plus, research and share studies that show why so much discrimination and oppression happen repeatedly to Black citizens. I hope this media resource offers people of all colors an inside look at the variables that cause issues in Black Americans' lives. And the reason why reparations are due to Black citizenship yesterday.


I look forward to continually giving you the mic back!

Kindly Karen Brittingham-Edmond, Editor and Publisher of the relaunched Echo, N.J.'s oldest Black-owned newspaper since 1904.

"In Concern of the Negro"

Revised as of Aug 25, 2023


I'm happy to report that the project is active and progressing as planned. The relaunched Echo made significant progress in the last year with the help of team members working diligently to meet our deadlines. Thank you to cousin Valerie Richardson, who referred former Asbury Park News Reporter Tiasia Newman to join the relaunched Echo writing team as of May 2023. Plus, an additional acknowledgment of appreciation to Umar Thomas, who joined the relaunched Echo writing team in the Spring of 2022 and has drawn over 500 new readers to the relaunched Echo website. This week's primary focus has been developing the initial prototype for 2023-2024. I'm pleased to say that we've successfully completed it thanks to our faithful Echo News T.V. L.L.C. Volunteer Content Manager Jordan Egu.



In addition to this, we've also made considerable headway on the project's design and user interface. As of today, you will view an upgraded Echo News T.V. L.L.C. Website, which provides a donation portal to the website for readers interested in supporting N.J.'s oldest Black-owned newspaper initiated in Fall of 2022, where a small portion of donations were received totaling less than $200. We will use the donation portal as a site where 2023 Fall and Winter unique gift packages, plus relaunched Echo News TV Christmas Cards, can be purchased. The website has also expanded to provide advertising space for local businesses and sponsors to advertise their goods on the website. The prototype has undergone thorough testing, and we've identified a few minor issues we're currently working on resolving. Several culturally sensitive news tabs will be added to bring more variety to Echo News T.V. L.L.C. readers.

Those news columns are,


  1. Church Events & Happenings

  2. Health and Wellness with Dr. Carol Penn of Penn Global Medical

  3. Reeveyism (Humor) With Mr. David Reevey

  4. Beauty Advisory Column with "Beauty on the Go Girl!" Ms. Karla Brittingham

  5. CheConnect Business Networking Events with Ms. Cheron Whittaker

  6. Travel & Entertainment With Mrs. Hope



Our team has been hard at work creating a variety of membership campaigns and donation drives that will provide people of all colors, incomes, and ages who want to see media that provides plain-spoken reports that speak truth to injustice in a rewarding and affordable way with our Echo News T.V. L.L.C. Tee-shirt/Tumbler set, along with our Echo Black Beauties of the month Calendar fundraiser. Echo News T.V. L.L.C. will continue to report current and past issues that were either under-reported or not reported but openly discriminate, slander, or purposely seek to block African American citizenship rights, privileges, and protections on purpose. Echo News T.V. L.L.C. will continue to expose systematic tactics that have managed to stimy the advancement of a vulnerable population of Black citizens and their children in New Jersey. At the same time, Echo News TV L.L.C. is broadening our perspective to share like-minded stories and intervention efforts across the United States put into action by non-racist and ethical civil service organizations and leaders.


The bounce rate shows that readers focus primarily on social justice and spotlight pieces overall.


The relaunched Echo will continue to echo out plus expose unethical, illegal activity that primarily hinders the overall wellness of said long-suffering population of Black citizens simply because of the color of their skin and the treasonous behavior of other citizens, Black or White. As well as share feel-good stories, poetry, fashion, and more. The Echo News T.V. L.L.C. team has demonstrated great flexibility and resilience. Echo News T.V. L.L.C. will continue to partner with Universities Black American and North American Indigenous media so that readers can hear the perspective of both Black citizens and North American Natives, which may include unknown historical accounts. As well as climate change studies that provide clarity and vital information concerning N.J.'s drinking water, aqueducts, and forestry, plus secondary pollution effects on long-term Black communities and children.



I'm very proud of everyone's efforts. Moving forward, we'll focus on refining the online media prototype and implementing additional features such as providing the public with two hard copy newsletters that will be distributed throughout local towns and communities throughout the state of N.J. Echo News T.V. L.L.C. also will be conducting user testing to ensure that our product meets the needs of our target audience. Lastly, Echo News T.V. L.L.C. is excited about working with Chelsea Brunson of Morph Mentoring, initiated in February 2023. Echo News T.V. L.L.C., with the help of Morph Mentoring, is developing our nonprofit department titled "Rock Legacy Movement." Our nonprofit department seeks to build awareness and preserve information on historic Black churches and churchyards in N.J. that tangibly provide many Black citizens with their Monmouth County Freedom Story for cross-generational enrichment. Overall, I'm pleased with our progress thus far, and I'm confident we'll continue to make great strides in the coming weeks and months ahead.
