TESTIMONIALS The Cincinnati Defender is one of the country’s premier information & entertainment publications. As a television screenwriter & author who live in Greater Cincinnati, The Defender is my #1 source for connecting with new business leads. If you're looking to increase your visibility in the community, let The Cincinnati Defender take your business to the next level. Kole Black, Television Producer & Screenwriter

At the beginning of this year our company set out to put on one of the largest tours that any independent promotion company could put together. We have been all over the U.S. And coming into the Cincinnati market, we were a bit hesitant because we really didn't know Cincy at all, let alone the fact that we are an out of town Promotion Company and were not sure how Cincy would take to us. You always have your regular media outlets, radio, print and what not, but times have changed and so has the promotion game. To make a long story short no promotion big or small can go without the internet. The team at Cincinnati Defender understands that and did everything they could to making sure that both of our shows (Mike Epps & Friends Comedy Show & Rickey Smiley & Kem: A Night of Love & Laugher) this year in Cincy were successful and they were! We owe Crystal and her team a lot, and were going to owe them a lot more because we are not done yet! It’s nice to know you have people you can count on to keep their word and do what they say they were going to do. Bottom line, that's what our company at Phase One, is about and I'm proud to have another company like the Defender working with us and believing in the same business ethics. Thanks for everything Crystal! We will be back soon and can't wait to work with you again, you have succeeded our expectations. ThxRome C.
