I’m late, but better late than never… So I’ll make this quick. 

Tonight, ASPiRE, Wednesday, May 6 at 9 pm EST only on the ASPiRE TV network, the season premiere of its weekly talk series, “Exhale” (@exhaleTV), which is hosted by renaissance woman Issa Rae; journalist and media maven Angela Burt-Murray; comedian Erin Jackson; author and TV anchor Rene Syler; and actress Malinda Williams.

“The ladies of ‘Exhale’ are back!,” said ASPiRE general manager Paul Butler. “Our viewers are going to love the way ‘Exhale’ delivers the perfect blend of real talk on important topics, along with real laughs and emotion.”

In the all-new episodes (there’ll be 8 this season), a wide range of topics affecting African American women – including friendships, stereotypes, domestic conflict, secrets and entrepreneurs – will be discussed. Each episode will feature special guests, from celebrities and authors, to religious leaders and other professionals. 

ASPiRE is the network from Earvin “Magic” Johnson, by the way. It was launched in June 2012, by Comcast from among over 100 candidates as one of four new minority-owned independent TV networks, and expectations are that the new network will be available in 20 to 30 million homes in the USA. Check with you cable TV provider to find out if you have it, assuming you’re not certain if you do.
