About This Podcast
If Hamilton and 60 Minutes gave birth to a podcast, it would be News Beat. The News Beat Podcast is a short-form educational and political news podcast focused on social justice and civil liberties issues, that melds the worlds of journalism and music.
We elevate journalistic storytelling through interviews with experts, thought leaders, academics and activists, coupled with original verses from musicians and independent hip-hop artists to foster a deeper connection with listeners and deliver an alternative narrative on some of the most pressing issues, events and people shaping our world.
Morey Creative Studios, longtime publisher of the award-winning Long Island Press, launched News Beat to continue the mission of truth-telling and journalistic integrity that guided the Press for its nearly 15 years of publication. News Beat utilizes verse, beats, and audio to educate, inform, and inspire our readers and listeners—interacting with the public on a whole new level in the process.
