NewsOne Now Audio Podcast: New PLUS Loan Requirements Still Bar Many From HBCUs


The Education Department has loosened credit requirements for the PLUS Loan program used by parents and college students, but some say the changes are not enough to get all of the students adversely impacted by the program back in the classroom.

Johnny Taylor,  President & CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund joined guest host Armstrong Williams on “NewsOne Now” to discuss how the PLUS Loan program has done more to hurt than good to African American college students enrolled in historically Black colleges and universities.

Judge Faith Jenkins appeared on NewsOne Now to discuss the latest developments in the Michael Brown case. Results from the Brown autopsy have been leaked saying the 18-year-old was shot in the hand at close range and that he had marijuana in his system.

Earlier this week, L’Oreal USA inked a deal to acquire Lisa Price’s Carol’s Daughter. Guest host Angela Rye and the “NewsOne Now” panel (Janaye Ingram, Stefanie Brown James and Chanelle Hardy) discussed the deal, its impact on the natural hair care market and the deal’s impact on our community.

Do you think this was a good business move or do you think Price sold out?

Bershan Shaw of OWN’s “Love In The City” is a two time breast cancer survivor. She stopped by “NewsOne Now” to share the amazing story of how she overcame her illness.

During her discussion with guest host Angela Rye, Bershan explained that the first time she was diagnosed with breast cancer she was diagnosed  at stage one. The second time it came back, she was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer and given three to six months to live.

All that and more in this special edition of the NewsOne Now Audio Podcast.
