24-hour Internet television site for African-Americans launches

National Black Television has launched a website dedicated to producing and delivering programming specifically for African-Americans. NBTV1.com hopes to provides content that is engaging and compelling for black youth in particular. The website will provide news and sports, while seeking to cover stories that over networks don’t. The Midland Daily News reports:

National Black Television, the world’s first Internet television network, is online and streaming programming dedicated to the empowerment of African-Americans.

As NBTV1.com signed-on April 6, its founder, president and CEO Stanley Everage, Jr., pledged: “We will never come off the air, brothers and sisters. We won’t stop. I want the world, especially young people, to experience the influence and power of the leaders within the African-American community.”

This Internet television network firmly supports historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and the critical role they play in the advancement of African-American youth. “NBTV is proud to showcase college life,” Everage says, “to give young people a view of what life can be if they stay focused on their goals, and dreams.”

NBTV1.com is unique in the world of news, sports and information because its cameras and correspondents go where other networks simply do not. NBTV1.com is especially proud to be streaming live and exclusively at the 1st annual Battle of the Bands and Greek Step Show between Alabama State University and Alabama A&M University. This fantastic event is set for October 26, 2012 in Birmingham, Alabama.
