Dianna Hobbs, President & CEO of Empowering Everyday Women (EEW) Online Magazine, the nation’s leading web publication for women of faith and color, is the August 2012 cover story for Women of Standard Magazine. In the exclusive feature, the urban media specialist, named one of the “70 Most Influential Black Christian History-makers” by Black Christian News Network, is giving readers an inside look at how she is impacting the culture for Christ.

The Buffalo, N.Y. native tells Women of Standard that the public consciousness has been dulled to the manipulation tactics of corporate-owned mainstream media, and she is intent on blowing the whistle. “We aren’t catching that we are being mind-controlled and manipulated by the media that we trust,” Hobbs told the magazine. “They awaken this desire within us and fulfill it with products. We think we know what our desires are but many times it’s shaped by social context and the media.”

Also a radio personality who produces and hosts her own top-rated daily urban faith-based show, CROSS CULTURE IN HD on Western NY’s #1 Gospel station, WUFO 1080 AM, the media maven doesn’t view her broad platform as entertainment. “It’s a ministry because God wants people with a kingdom perspective out there injecting their voice so we can counteract all of the negativity that is invading and infiltrating people of faith and the church.”

Hobbs’ work in media and blossoming music ministry has gained her the respect of the nation’s most revered business, ministry, and entertainment leaders. She is called upon frequently to participate in conferences, revivals, and business events across the country.

In the current issue of Women of Standard that also features national recording artist and Detroit native, Damita Haddon, Hobbs reveals that IndieBuzz Music Corporation will be releasing her brand new single, “It Ain’t Over,” in August — a song birthed out of a heralding story of survival of a near-death experience that nearly derailed the gifted singer/songwriter’s career in its infancy.

The August 2012 issue of Women of Standard is available now.
