Urban One’s CEO Alfred Liggins Speaks On Being Inducted Into The Prestigious Cable Center Hall of Fame

Founder/Chairperson, Cathy Hughes, and CEO of Urban One, Alfred Liggins

Founder/Chairperson, Cathy Hughes, and Alfred Liggins, the CEO of Urban One, were recently inducted into the Cable Center Hall of Fame. The journey of the historic mother-son business partnership began in 1985 and has proven to be one of the most visionary decisions Hughes has made.

Liggins took on more responsibility as Radio One grew, and in 1994 he took over day-to-day operations, with Hughes as CEO. She says it was a smart move to make the transition when she did instead of waiting until she was ready to retire as many heads of family-owned businesses tend to do. “Parents wait too long to let go,” she says.
