I’m Hitting The ‘Street Beat’

If you can’t get enough of me on “First Forecast Mornings” (from 5 am to 7 am on WWJ-TV and 7 am to 9 am on CW 50), well then you are in luck!

Starting this Sunday, I will be hosting “Street Beat” on CW50.  The weekly show goes behind the headlines to focus on community issues and stories of interest to Metro Detroit.

Syma Chowdhry is the New Host of Street Beat

I am very excited about this opportunity because it gives me the chance to meet community leaders and talk about topics that affect Michiganders.

We’ll focus on non-profit organizations trying to make a difference.  This week’s topic is about crime.

One of the folks we will be talking with is Jamal Herbert from the Michigan Youth Challenge Academy.  The MYCA mentors at-risk boys and girls to stay away drugs.  Why are we talking about this school?  MYCA teaches children to build their lives in a productive path, in hopes of keeping them away from crime.

So what social issues are you concerned about?  Tell me below or tweet me at or tell me on
