NEW YORK - Jan. 2, 2018 - PRLog -- Meet Karen Hunter (https://karenhuntershow.com/), the best kept secret in radio broadcasting, publishing and social activism.  A New Jersey native, Hunter is a change agent, influencer, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, professor, New York Times best-selling author, and host of the popular, The Karen Hunter Show on Sirius XM Channel 126, Urban View, five days a week, 3-6 pm eastern standard time (EST). Named one of the "Heavy Hundred" (The 100 Most Important Radio Talk Show Hosts in America) by industry bible Talkers Magazine, Karen has blazed a trail, bringing more action and less talk to the radio circuit. Hunter not only has some of the most provocative interviews, with some of the biggest movers and shakers in the world, she is also challenging her listeners to participate in the success they want to see and be.

"My listeners and I are on a path to make changes, one moment at a time. We took down the Confederate flag, now we will diversify the electoral body with a major voter registration drive to commence in early 2018. I value my platform and know that change will only happen via truth, information, and voting. Each election is important, from grassroots, local politics to the national stage," says Hunter.

Karen created The Party of Lincoln app (available on iTunes), a non-partisan resource guide, where citizens can register to vote, change party affiliation and get candidate information during election season, both nationally and locally. Also, there is a fact-checker feature for political claims made by candidates.

Following the massacre of the Charleston 9 in June of 2015, Karen Hunter authored a petition calling for the removal of the Confederate Flag from the statehouse of South Carolina. Within three days, more than 500,000 people signed that petition. Within a week, Gov. Nikki Haley vowed to take down the flag and the flag came down. This is the power of The Karen Hunter Show as stated in a New York Times article, "By the afternoon of the day after the massacre, people in the governor's office were taking notice. Around noon, Ms. Hunter, a radio host whose once-obscure show on Sirius XM Radio has been transformed by her outspokenness about white police officers' killing young black men, posted her petition online. Within a day, its host, Moveon.org, a liberal advocacy group, told her that it was receiving 5,000 signatures an hour. "As the host often says, "The Karen Hunter Show is not a talk show, it is an "action" show!"

The Karen Hunter Show has scored numerous viral highlights coupled with star power: Interviewed the cast of the movie Fences, including Denzel Washington and Viola Davis; a no-holds-barred interview with then-presidential hopeful, Dr. Ben Carson (October 2015), which went viral. And, their #TechTuesday movement, created The Party of Lincoln app through crowdfunding. In December 2016, The Party of Lincoln was named the No. 1 influencer in the #govtech space.

Hunter, a graduate of Drew University, and a full-time professor/Distinguished Lecturer in Film & Media Department at Hunter College is no stranger to making history.

A former sports and news reporter with New York's hometown newspaper, the New York Daily News, for 16 years, Karen served four of those years on the editorial board of The News, where she was a member of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize- and Polk Award-winning teams. She was also the paper's first African-American female news columnist. "Storytelling and creating is my heartbeat; and, marrying my love for words with writing and business has allowed me to lend my talent to working with many celebrities to tell their stories authentically," laughs Hunter. As the head of Karen Hunter Books (KHB), an imprint with Simon & Schuster, Karen has published No. 1 New York Times, True You, by pop icon Janet Jackson, New York Times best-selling, Kris Jenner and All Things Kardashian by Kris Jenner, and New York Times best-selling, Mama Dearest by the late E. Lynn Harris. In 2014, KHB released My Country 'Tis Of Thee by Congressman Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress. And, In the Kitchen with Kris by Kris Jenner and Thinspired by Mara Schiavocampo. Hunter also published the critically acclaimed autobiographical novel, An Angry-Ass Black Woman by Karen Quinones Miller.
