Check out the latest edition of UPFRONT/Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry.

The first segment features Hollywood writer, Chad Sanders. The author of the popular book, Black Magic, drops by to discuss his new 8-part Audible Original Direct Deposit. The highly anticipated project includes candid conversations between Chad and Black Hollywood Power Players who talk about what really happens to Black people who become rich and famous.

And in our second segment, we're celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Broadway’s The Lion King with acclaimed actress Kissy Simmons. The New York based performer is taking us back down memory lane as she discusses her years of playing “Nala” and why audiences can’t get enough of this Disney classic.

UPFRONT/Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry is hosted and produced by Ray Cornelius for Jazz 91.9 WCLK. The show also re-airs on SiriusXM HBCU Ch. 142 Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 6:30 pm EST.
