Entercom Philadelphia’s Cherri Gregg Honored by the National Association of Black Journalists

Entercom, the #1 creator of live, original, local audio content in the United States, congratulates KYW Newsradio 1060 (KYW-AM) Community Affairs Reporter Cherri Gregg on being recognized by the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) with a “Salute to Excellence Award” at the 2018 NABJ Salute to Excellence Gala in Detroit. This marks the second consecutive year Gregg has been recognized by the organization.

Gregg was recognized in the “Public Affairs” category in Top 15 Markets, Radio for a segment from her weekly program “Flashpoint,” titled “Police Transparency – When Should Names of Officers Who Kill Be Released?” “Flashpoint” airs Saturdays at 9:30 p.m. ET and Sundays at 8:30 a.m. ET.

“It comes as no surprise that Cherri has been recognized once again for the exemplary work she contributes to KYW,” said David Yadgaroff, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Philadelphia. “The hard work she has committed to ‘Flashpoint’ in less than a year demonstrates why she is deserving of this honor.

“I am honored and humbled by this great recognition,” added Gregg. “’Flashpoint’ was designed to inform our listeners of impactful issues relevant to Philadelphia, and this acknowledgement validates the importance of creating conversation around social issues.”

Launched in 2017, “Flashpoint” discusses community affairs, political news, civil rights and social issues in the Philadelphia area. In 2017, NABJ honored Gregg with a “Salute to Excellence Award” in TV Investigative Top 15 Markets for her piece, “Driving While Black,” a collaboration between Entercom and CBS3-TV.

Gregg joined Entercom in 2010. She’s a recognized leader in the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists, where she served in the roles of President from 2015 to 2016 and Vice President of Broadcast in 2013.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
