Cathy Hughes, who should be a household name in her hometown of Omaha, is eager to return next week for two full days of public activity — both serious and fun.
The 1964 graduate of Duchesne Academy, who once lived in an Omaha housing project, became the founder and chair of black-oriented radio, TV and digital networks now called Urban One. Based in Washington, she is one of the wealthiest black women in America.
On Thursday in Omaha, a street-naming ceremony in her honor will be held at 11 a.m. at the Fontenelle Park Pavilion. A community reception will follow from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Love’s Jazz & Art Center, near 24th and Lake Streets
The stream can be viewed live Thursday 1/12c at CathyHughes.com.
