If you’re in urban media on the east coast and aren’t familiar with Saptosa Foster and 135th St Agency, you may need to tighten up your circle. Years ago, I used to read bylines by Saptosa Foster every time I caught one. You see, she was one of only a few women doing hip-hop journalism in the mid- to- late 1990s but beyond that, she’s nice with the pen.
Since the start of the millennium, Foster’s been building in media from another angle, founding the boutique PR firm 135th St Agency with Shante Bacon.
On this episode of Day 1 Radio, Saptosa explains her grind from freelance writer to well-respected publicist — from parties with Jeezy & BMF on Peachtree to pushing wolfs on Wall Street. It was our pleasure to have her on. Check it.
