Jennifer Jones Austin, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of FPWA is named the first female Co-Host of the popular Sunday morning radio show “Open Line” on WBLS 107.5 FM.

Austin, an attorney, who served as a senior official in two mayoral administrations and as the Deputy Bureau Chief for Civil Rights in the Office of the New York State Attorney General, brings decades of experience and expertise in faith-based and social justice advocacy to the show.

She joins co-hosts Judge Bob Pickett and Fatiyn Muhammed every Sunday at 8 AM in New York.

Muhammed is the host and executive producer of “Open Line” and the executive producer for two nationally syndicated radio Shows for Rev. Al. Sharpton.

“It’s an honor and a privilege you to join Open Line. I’m thrilled to bring my voice as a Black woman to our Sunday morning dialogue about key issues affecting us as individuals and as a community,” said Jennifer Jones Austin. “Humbly walking in the footsteps of the legendary Bob Slade and Mtume, and drawing inspiration from my co-hosts, Fatiyn Muhammad and Bob Pickett, I hope to contribute greatly to what is already a trusted information source for our community.”
