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.

streetbeat2 Im Hitting The Street Beat

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 www.twitter.com/FFMSyma or tell me on www.facebook.com/symanews.

    Dear Syma,
    Mercy Education Project is making a difference in the lives of girls and women in Detroit. Many of our adult students have failed im 3, 4 or even more GED programs but, if they complete the program at MEP, more than 90% will pass the GED. Some of the kids who went through our after-school tutoring program are now in college–some have even come back to be tutors here. We are helping people in Detroit open the door to a brighter future.
