Cathy Hughes began her career in radio in 1969, her first position being with KOWH, a black radio station in Omaha, Nebraska. Her successes there prompted the Howard University School of Communications to offer her a position as a lecturer and as assistant to the Dean of Communications. In 1973, Hughes was named General Sales Manager of WHUR-FM in Washington, D.C., and by 1975 was hired as the General Manager of the station. Since the early days of being a station owner, Hughes’ rise has been remarkable. Today, Radio One owns 65 radio stations throughout every major market in the country, making the company the largest black-owned radio chain in the nation. In January of 2004, Hughes launched TV One, a cable television channel targeted at the African-American community.
