Jill Scott and iHeartMedia Announce New Original Podcast “Jill Scott Presents: J.ill the Podcast”

 iHeartMedia, the No. 1 podcast publisher globally according to Podtrac, and Jill Scott, a music and entertainment icon and multimedia entrepreneur, today announced “Jill Scott Presents: J.ill the Podcast.” The intimate talk show-style podcast will feature no-holds-barred conversations on topics around relationships, culture, health, art and everything else that comes with surviving and thriving as a Black woman in today’s world. The iHeartRadio Original Podcast will premiere November 18, with new episodes airing every Wednesday. Listeners can hear the official audio trailer now on iHeartRadio and everywhere podcasts are heard.

Joining Scott on the show will be her sister friends, fellow singer-songwriter Aja Graydon-Dantzler and leading radio personality Laiya St. Clair, who bring their diverse perspectives to spark unique discussions about today’s most important issues. The three women will engage in thought-provoking conversations about a variety of topics – from where they would go if they ever left the U.S. to addressing rumors that have been spread about them to their thoughts on the grind and productivity culture.  As we continue to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her debut album, Who is Jill Scott? Words & Sounds, Vol. 1, the podcast is Scott’s latest multimedia endeavor, connecting her more personally to her devoted fan base and the next generation of Black culture consumers. Scott, a trusted voice named by TIME Magazine as a "cultural icon of healing power and serenity," is a Grammy-winning singer/songwriter, New York Times bestselling poet, and NAACP award-winning actress.

“J.ill the Podcast will spark unfiltered conversations by and for Black women who influence culture and uplift sisterhood,” said Scott. “2020 has been a challenging year for our community, and our hope is that this show will continue to keep our love village connected, entertained and empowered. These are valuable discussions about how we’re feeling and what’s happening in the world today.”

This honest, powerful, and moving show will address everything from friendships between Black women to motherhood, politics, film, and television, and much more. Listeners can expect to hear expert commentary from guests, such as Dr. Yaba Blay and Kier Gaines, as well as illuminating discussions between the hosts analyzing the impact of significant cultural moments.

“We’re honored to partner with Jill in bringing this important project to life,” said Will Pearson, Chief Operating Officer, iHeartPodcast Network. “The topics that the podcast broaches are critical to today’s cultural dialogue and we look forward to helping deliver these important perspectives to our listeners.”

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

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.
