Milestone Moment: MoShay Laren
Milestone honoree MoShay LaRen represents African American women in the media through her hard work in communications and constant contributions to the community. Host and producer of Radio One’s 100.3 WRNB midday show and founder of Love Yourself, MoShay has continuously accomplished milestones and created avenues for minority voices to be heard in a major way.
As a popular host and producer on the R&B station, MoShay introduces music while infusing lifestyle, entertainment, social and community segments. This dynamic broadcaster has also ventured into other media outlets by expanding her portfolio in television, hosting lifestyle and entertainment segments for the UPN and CW Networks. Along with MoShay’s many roles, she has also mastered special event hosting, taking the mic out of the studio and around town as mistress of ceremonies at a variety of concerts and special events.
In 2009, MoShay launched the Love Yourself campaign, dedicated to rescuing and healing victims of domestic violence. The campaign was designed to inspire and restore women of all ages with self-love. Love Yourself has earned MoShay a seat on the Board of the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and in 2010 she was presented with the Next Generation of Leadership Rising Star Award by Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown. MoShay is affiliated with Women Against Abuse and Women in Transition, organizations that also take part in her mission to transform women’s lives. Her efforts to reach at-need communities nationwide has gained the attention and support of both politicians and celebrities, including Grammy-winning singers Chrisette Michele and Ledisi, Sheryl Lee Ralph, PA Senator Vincent Hughes, Holly Robinson Peete and Victoria Rowell, among others.
MoShay LaRen has taken the communications industry by storm, gaining thirteen-years of broadcast experience. Jumping into the competitive TV and radio industry and locally becoming one of Philadelphia’s most loved broadcast personalities, it seems that MoShay’s go-getter attitude and accomplishments have no end in sight. Philadelphia Black Public Relations Society is proud to honor this African American woman in the media, next Tuesday at our Milestones event!
