Beasley Best Community of Caring

Beasley Media Group has an on-going commitment to making a difference in the local communities we serve; this has been the foundation upon which the company was built back in 1961, when George Beasley purchased his first radio station in North Carolina! We proudly continue that tradition today.

The Sports Hub is part of the Beasley Best Community of Caring. We care about kids, you do, too. Kids who participate in sports and the arts do better in school, they reap benefits that will last a lifetime. Sports teaches teamwork and leadership skills. Taking up an instrument can help a child develop focus, memory, and concentration. Performance art leads to creativity and better language and reading skills. But the truth is, many kids don’t get the chance to join in these essential activities at school. You can help make these opportunities available to every child. Volunteer! Coach – local leagues are looking for you. Create your own theater production – a backyard, church or schoolyard can make a great stage. Donate! Support the local organizations giving kids the chance to develop skills and express themselves!
