ABOUT DR. VIBE
“Demolishing the digital divide and raising the level of consciousness”
You can tell from the name… music has always been his first love. Dr. Vibe is the host and producer of the The Dr. Vibe Show. He’s been a self podcaster for the past five years and since then he’s done over 500 interviews for internet broadcast with people from all over the world. The music moves him, but doesn’t define him. Dr. Vibe seeks to create a positive image for Black males through compelling and hard hitting interviews on his show. He has gotten into the minds of black powerhouses such as Keith Forde (Deputy Chief Retired, Toronto Police Service), Michael “Pinball” Clemons, Senator Don Meredith, ESPN Radio’s Freddie Coleman and actress and producer Robin Givens. The Dr. Vibe Show was the winner of the “Best International Blog” category and a finalist in the “Best Podcast” category at the 2012 Black Weblog Awards.The Vibe and Vegas Show was a finalist in two categories (Best International Blog and Best Podcast Series) at the 2011 Black Weblog Awards. His digital life changed in 1999 with the purchase of his first computer. Realizing the potential to reach millions with the internet, Dr. Vibe began sending inspirational quotes every day, just to three of his closest friends. Now he has a list of over 300 people who are motivated by his daily messages. He also wanted to create a positive space for Blacks, and started the website blacksense.com. To merge his love of music with his dream of inspiring people, he started The Dr. Vibe Show four years ago. And that dream is only getting bigger. Viewership was over 350 per cent in 2011 versus 2010. Dr. Vibe readily admits he still has no idea how to code, but he is able to reach thousands with his website and podcast. He has done presentations on how to podcast for the Canadian Association of Black Journalists, Podcamp Toronto and has also been featured in the national newspaper The Globe and Mail.
Dr. Vibe was also a reporter for the Rogers Toronto television show, Caribbean Headline News and was a member of the 2012 Podcamp Toronto organizing team.
It’s his passion to reach others with positivity, his drive to give his community a voice around the world that propels him to success.
