Braylin Jenkins is a man driven by passion. Those passions include urban development, media, and travel. Braylin’s goals and aspirations tend to be very community-oriented. Since his days as a student-intern in the mayor’s office, Braylin has been committed to getting those around him to rediscover everything SWLA has to offer. Recently, those efforts were recognized at the 2013 National Tourism Week Luncheon as one of two recipients of the 2013 Media Partner in Tourism Award.
In 2009, the opportunity of creating Dumont Air (online radio) came along and Braylin jumped at the chance to voice not only his views but to give the Lake City community a voice of their own. While going strong online, Braylin began reporting news with Cumulus Broadcasting LLC in 2011. Soon after that, Braylin joined the news team at KVHP FOX29 in Lake Charles, LA. Add to his broadcasting repertoire, the growing list of EMCEE experience and Braylin Jenkins was quickly considered a media force to be reckoned with.
Tapping into his experience as a columnist for The Contraband, a McNeese State University student publication, Braylin began his role as a regular contributor to The Jambalaya News with his column 'Lake City Beat’ and writer for Lagniappe Magazine and Exposure Magazine. Formerly contributed to LakeCharles.com, furthering his dedication to the area's music scene.
He hosts Hey Bray J: Live in Studio, once an online radio show and podcast which aired on LouisianaIndieRadio.com and imm Radio on indmusicmedia.com. The show is now aired on 88.3 KBYS and kbys.fm each Thursday night at 7 PM. The show features independent and unsigned music artists throughout Louisiana along with entertainment and event segments, interviews, laughs and a community based focus. As a young twenty-something native to the SWLA region, Braylin’s commitment to his community isn’t going anywhere!
On a side note, there are many causes and organizations that Braylin supports, however three in particular are very close to his heart. Those organizations include SPICY (Suicide Prevention & Intervention Coalition for Youth, N.A.M.I. Southwest Louisiana (National Alliance on Mental Illness) and the Arts & Humanities Council of SWLA. Find out more about these organizations and see why they matter so much to Braylin.
