Today it was announced that VOICES of East New York With Nikki Lucas will be going live.  The show will be aired live every Sunday, beginning Sunday May 3, 2020 at 9am,  The online video series features one on one interviews with elected officials, community leaders, health care professionals, NYC education advocates, and a lot more.

The first 3 episodes were recorded prior to the Coronavirus quarantine and aired over the past few weeks. JIG Media, which produces the show, decided to go live with a remote streaming production during the remainder of the quarantine.

“We will most likely stick with the live episodes even after the quarantine”, stated Vernon Jones, CEO of JIG Media. “There’s so much happening every week in East New York and the surrounding areas that it makes sense to have a live show that is professionally produced. It allows us to keep the residents updated on relevant news that affects their lives. Having Nikki Lucas as the host is great because she has her pulse on what’s happening throughout East Brooklyn, not just East New York. Besides, Nikki has been working closely with us on our New York for Seniors and Healthy NYC initiatives over the past three years as the host of the events and moderator of our Healthcare Panel Discussions.”

The recorded episodes that aired over the past few weeks included one on one interviews with New York State Senator Julia Salazar and community activists Vincent Riggins and Chris Banks.

Week one (Sunday May 3) will include interviews with a CEO of a company in the health industry and an expert on education.
