Don Allen, Founder – OBN

Our Black News, (formally the Independent Business News Network) was established in July of 2008. The goal of OBN is to provide a different view of the local, national and global news and events that happen in the Black communities in the Twin Cities, as well as the United States. Our expectations are to provide a level of coverage and investigative reporting not seen in a long time. Our Black News covers Politics, Education, Money, Business, and Community events. In most cases, the mainstream media does not cover important news in the Black community. OBN is here to tear open the tent!

    We’ve recently discovered The Ron and Don Show and believe you have created an amazing platform. We were inquiring if you would be open to having our founder Jay Colby on your show as a guest?

    Below we’ve provided a quick description of our organization and links to our social media and online publication.


    The Black Detour is a independent media outlet that advocates for Black people to not only be empowered, but informed on issues in the Black community. We’re part of a growing movement in America to empower Black people all across the United States. At our core we stand with Black people and want our voices, opinions and thoughts heard.
