Whether it’s delivering news on the radio, engaging a crowd as an exciting event emcee, or empowering teens as they struggle with self-confidence, the one constant theme is Ashlei’s unmistakable voice.
And she uses her voice to Inform, Inspire, and Empower.
Ashlei Stevens has a media career spanning 20 years. She is a host and producer at BLACK ENTERPRISE, the #1 Black digital media brand, where she is a staff writer, moderator for panel discussions, and she conducts interviews across BE’s digital, broadcast, and events platforms. She is also a professional voice artist for national commercials and brands including AT&T, Amazon, the Minnesota Vikings, the University of Tennessee Athletics Department and Dr. Tony Evans’ Ministry.
She began her career as an award-winning education reporter in Spartanburg, S.C., later served as an education policy adviser to the Governor of South Carolina, and co-led the media relations team for the 2020 Census in Washington, D.C. She spent most of her career at UNCF, the United Negro College Fund, including roles in communications, fundraising, and as media adviser to the CEO. Ashlei served as association spokeswoman representing federal government contractors, and provided communications strategy to government clients of a leading public health research firm. She hosted talk shows in New York City for Time Warner Cable and UPTOWN Magazine, highlighting African Americans in the entertainment industry.
And she's most excited about the newest venture God has assigned to her voice: providing news to listeners on gospel stations across several states, including Tuesdays and Thursdays on The Jamal Bates Morning Show; on Columbia, SC's top inspiration channel, WFMV, at 4:35pm and 6:35pm ET and on Fort Wayne, IN's Rhythm & Praise at 11:40AM and 1:40PM ET.
