HBCU Buzz announced Monday, August 6, 2012 Tommy Meade Jr. as its new Editor in Chief for the 2012-2013 year. He succeeds Virginia Union University alumni Michael Livingston II, who took over the position October 2011.

As HBCU Buzz’s Editor in Chief, Meade will serve as a liaison to readers, write weekly columns, and uplift as he climb—helping mold, develop, and mature current and future HBCU Buzz Staff Writers, and readers while he learn from miss-takes and adversity at the same time.

Meade is a junior at Central State University (Ohio) majoring in Journalism who believes in service to humanity. He is a Student Ambassador, English Tutor, mentor, and a diligent friend who values giving back more so than self-achievement. Meade is also actively involved on the yard, serving his community as Secretary of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. and Student African American Brotherhood.  He is formerly a Staff Writer for HBCU Buzz.

Like his predecessor, Meade’s goal in his new role is continuing HBCU Buzz’s establishment as the number one source for news, commentary, and events for the Black college student community. Moreover, he plans to shed light on positive, appropriate, and significant news in the Black community that often goes untold.
