Ultramagnetic: FuseBoxRadio

Her syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast was founded back in 1998 while she was an undergrad at Rutgers University. Her show is a mix of new and classic hip hop, along with soul music from around the globe. But before you assume that FuseBoxRadio is only about the music, check her Twitter stream, blog and podcast for a barrage of political topics and social commentary. Who was all over the Swine Flu outbreak, the ongoing Somali pirate developments and AFRICOM? It was FuseBoxRadio.

This is a great example of expanding your reach by using social media for reasons other than direct self-promotion. Thousands of shows that started out on AM/FM radio are being broadcast on the internet right now. But not many are able to branch out beyond their original audience. FuseBoxRadio manages to stand out by using social media properly and by being multifaceted at a time when it's so much easier to dumb it down. Catch her transmissions wherever you can.
