Julius White

News and Public Affairs Director

Julius White (“Juice” to many of his friends) is WEAA 88.9 FM's News and Public Affairs Director.  Julius is an award winning journalist, who began his broadcasting career in Montgomery, Alabama at Alabama State University’s public radio station. Since that time, Julius has worked in both commercial and public radio--occasionally at the same time, i.e., commercial radio in the morning and public radio in the afternoon.  Julius has worked as a stringer for National Public Radio, American Urban Radio Networks, and appeared on BET Nightly News with Ed Gordon, covering the trial of one of the suspects in the 1963 bombing of Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church—a blast that killed 4 little girls. Other experiences for Julius include talk show host, news analyst on Alabama Public Television and a brief stint in politics, as Office Manager/Committee Assistant for a Birmingham City Council member. Julius and his wife, Charlita, have been married for 3 years and live in Towson, MD.

The awards event is usually in Ocean City, Maryland, but this year was virtual this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Twenty-two stations in Washington, Maryland, and Delaware submitted 284 entries in the contest, which featured news and sports stories from 2019. 

The former Baltimore mayor entered her plea on Friday to the state misdemeanor charge.  Prosecutors claim she failed to disclose her business association with Healthy Holly LLC when she was a Maryland state senator.
