If you see Darlene, she is usually on deadline while holding a cup of coffee in one hand and chasing her twin toddlers across metro Detroit. She is a Ferndale High School graduate, a Wayne State Warrior, and a proud member of the National Association of Black Journalists.
Darlene’s first love is radio. One of her radio career highlights was a phone interview she did with Dr. Maya Angelou in 2014, just before her passing. In addition to broadcast success, Darlene has also been inking her way to success in the print journalism world. She is a consistent freelance writer for The Detroit News, Detroit Free Press, Michigan Chronicle, Crain’s Detroit Business, and Parent Magazine.
