New Syndicated Weekly Radio Show, Café Mocha, Celebrates African American Women

        Hip Hop Icon MC Lyte, Comedienne Loni Love Bring Distinct Flavor to Airwaves

(Los Angeles – February 22, 2010) Two time Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist MC Lyte and
sought-after comedienne Loni Love (Chelsea Lately Show) are taking to the airwaves with the
premiere of the new, nationally syndicated weekly radio show, Café Mocha, scheduled to launch
February 2010.

Café Mocha, the brainchild of award-winning media veteran Sheila Eldridge, will be syndicated
by Superadio Networks, a division of Access.1 Communications Corporation that has more than
1,000 radio stations airing its programming across America. Airing Saturdays and Sundays, the
show will debut in Chicago and Washington, DC, with a program platform designed to “empower
and entertain” women of color everywhere. With Lyte and Love anchoring the show, the high-
energy, two-hour show will be packed with a mix of the latest in urban music, lively chats from
an unabashedly women’s perspective, no-holds barred advice and exclusive interviews with top
performers, celebrities, politicians and civic leaders.

“Café Mocha brings a fresh and empowering perspective that will speak directly and
wholeheartedly to a community often overlooked by radio: African American women,” said
Eldridge, Café Mocha Creator and Executive Producer. “We’re aiming to become the Essence
magazine of the airwaves celebrating all shades of mocha.”

Joining Lyte and Love as the third proverbial voice of reason is broadcast veteran Angelique
Perrin. A former host of Black Entertainment Televisions’ Screen Scene and the “voice” of the
long-running series Comic View is no stranger to radio, as she also served as talent and
producer at the hugely popular stations The Beat and Power 106 in Los Angeles.

Among the special correspondents and contributors who will join the trio with expertise on a
variety of topics include Michelle Hammond, an Emmy-Award winning author and motivational
speaker; and Dr. Rachael Ross, a licensed MD and clinically approved sexologist.

Café Mocha speaks directly to African American women, ages 18 to 49 who represent a
combined buying power of more than $1.2 trillion. The show provides the perfect national
platform for marketers trying to reach this highly coveted audience while locally the show’s Café
Mocha to Go Tour broadcast are specifically tailored for localized activities and initiatives that
expand the show’s connectivity with its female listeners. These day long empowerment events
will serve as an excellent vehicle for sponsor interaction; i.e. sampling, key brand messaging
and direct feedback all designed to address this growing segment that tend to make the key
household purchasing decisions for their families.

A key segment on Café Mocha will be the daily “Mocha Minute,” a one-minute feature
designed to both empower audience and drive listeners to the weekend show as well as provide
customize product placement.

Café Mocha’s highly-interactive website www.CafeMochaRadio.com will be developed and
hosted by Essence.com and will feature the latest integration of the social media tools, including
Facebook and Twitter and the Café Mocha Text Club. The site will allow for on-going listener-
driven content, promotions and giveaways from sponsors.
