Earlier this month, a Black woman launched the newest Black-owned radio station and television network located in downtown Atlanta.
Black News has reported that Tina Redmond, who uses the moniker DJ Chic Chick, is now the owner of Atlanta’s newest Black-owned radio station and television network, TRACC Radio and TRACC TV. The Inglewood, California, native says she created the two media platforms in an effort to offer independent artists, celebrities, as well business owners the chance to have their talent and or product promoted on a worldwide basis.
Previously, Redmond was working in Hollywood as a SAG-AFTRA actress and also performing production work behind the scenes. After years of being a part of the industry, she decided she would start producing music documentaries. She decided to go back to school for radio broadcasting and take some DJ lessons, which led to her becoming a DJ.
After attending Santa Monica College for radio broadcasting and then taking private DJ lessons at Scratch Academy in LA, DJ Chic Chick was born. She was inspired by the influence of several New York DJs such as DJ Scratch and Kid Capri. In 2018, Redmond AKA DJ Chic Chick moved back to Atlanta where she once owned an entertainment company called “Cali Chic Studio” in Buckhead. Two years later, she has opened her radio station in Atlanta with plans to one day open one in Los Angeles after the pandemic slows down.
TRACC Radio and TRACC TV’s Atlanta station is located in Midtown at 715 Peachtree St NE, Suite 100/200 Atlanta, GA, 30308.
