SOCIAL JUSTICE ACTIVIST AND VETERAN RADIO HOST MARK THOMPSON LAUNCHES NEW DAILY SHOW AND PODCAST WITH DNR STUDIOS AND DCP ENTERTAINMENT

New York, NY -- Social justice activist and former SiriusXM Radio host, Rev. Mark Thompson, today launched his new daily show and podcast, Make It Plain, in partnership with DNR Studios and DCP Entertainment. Rev. Thompson, who has spent nearly three decades on radio and as a TV commentator, says his new partnership with DNR and DCP is his own "declaration of independence."

"I was a free-agent and my friends at DNR and DCP called me and said to come on over to be free to do the show I need to do," says Rev. Thompson. He adds, "As election 2020 approaches, I want to make sure MIP remains the resource for listeners and voters it has always been."

Most of the 2020 Democratic candidates for President have already appeared on MIP to get their message out to Americans, including a new interview with Mayor Pete Buttigieg where he discusses the police shooting investigation in his city of South Bend, Indiana; his Frederick Douglass and Walker-Lewis Plans; being called the 'gay Obama'; and how "Black women are bearing the burden of the inequities in our justice system."
