As a radio group we have the responsibility to provide our listeners and online audience with the information to make informed and intelligent decisions. Regardless of the candidate and the political party, our focus will always be with the people. From ballot changes to election information to your rights as a voter; Radio One Houston feels that the best way to honor America is to equip our audience with the information to help shape their future. “It’s not our fault but it is our responsibility.”

This is the sentiment of most young people today when it comes to the upcoming election. The issues going on in our country were not ones that they created but they most certainly aim to face them head-on and fix.
