JSK Community Impact Fellow
president and CEO, WURD Radio
Philadelphia Pennsylvania

Sara Lomax-Reese is president and CEO of WURD Radio, Pennsylvania’s only African-American owned talk radio station and co-founder of URL Media, a network of Black and Brown media organizations that share content, distribution and revenues to increase their long-term sustainability. 

She has transformed WURD Radio from a legacy talk radio station to a multimedia communications company that provides original programming on air, online, through video and community events. Sara also launched two important initiatives: an environmental justice journalism platform called ecoWURD.com and Lively-HOOD, a multimedia project that connects Black Philadelphians to jobs, career readiness and entrepreneurship opportunities to address the persistent wealth gap in the Black community.

A graduate of University of Pennsylvania and Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, Sara has written for several local and national publications. During 2020 she was a coach in the Major Metro Table Stakes Program and was the Program Lead for the BIPOC Sustainability Accelerator designed to empower Black and Brown owned media organizations.
