MELODY FOX started her journey into entrepreneurship through independent publishing (in the late 90s)—with a commitment to present information that couldn’t be found in mainstream media outlets. Her coveted printed publications included: The Eye Opener (her first published newspaper which debuted at the 1997 Million Women’s March in Philadelphia and featured New York advertisers), The Black Track (a community newspaper), Special Supplements (an events guide), and Lyrical Times (the world’s first themed poetry newspaper).
During her years as a New York-based independent print newspaper publisher, Melody Fox met and networked with various community leaders, business owners, and artists. Among those are: James Mtume, Rev. Al Sharpton, Sister Souljah, Imhotep Gary Byrd, Rev. Jesse Jackson, and Dahved Levy. Many of those connections translated into new opportunities in management and production.
Melody Fox production collaborations have included associate production on the Sunday evening talk radio broadcast Express Yourself with Imhotep Gary Byrd (WBLS 107.5 FM)—whose host has been broadcasting for over four decades. Additionally, she’s provided technical assisting for New York’s longstanding Sunday morning talk radio broadcasts: Open Line (WBLS 107.5 FM) and the nationally syndicated Hour of Power with Reverend Al Sharpton. During her work with Open Line, Melody Fox also doubled as a booking agent for then veteran co-host James Mtume’s speaking engagements. From August 2014-January 2015, Melody Fox was on Coba Radio’s “Real Talk, Real Time”; Sunday’s from 7am-8am est). Ease, grace, and reliability are hallmarks of the Melody Fox brand.
Fox’s passion for working with individuals, organizations and initiatives that seek to inform and educate is also evidenced in her role as a leader in education for New York City Public Schools for over two decades. The mother of a special needs young adult that has Cerebral Palsy, it was critical for her to be informed and at the helm of affecting change for the developmentally challenged and beyond. Her scope of experience as a PTA President along with other executive roles and responsibilities has afforded her the opportunity to work with other leaders in education, politicians, and a range of community businesses.
Her commitment to the impact leadership can make to affect growth for our communities has also parlayed into her being a leader with the global organization Landmark Worldwide. As one of its former seminar managers in New York, Melody Fox’s responsibility has included leading teams and handling the logistics of seminars that include a collective body of participants to the tune of 2.2 million to date. Melody Fox is committed to fostering transformation.
In addition to working with various organizations and brands to make a difference locally and globally, this entrepreneur is the President and CEO of Melody Fox Media, a media platform that produces print, audio, and video for in house projects, the public at-large and its clients. Clear that legacy is as great as why, when, and how it’s captured, Melody Fox has taken her passion as a gatekeeper into consulting for full-length biographical and autobiographical works (writing and film).
This history maker as the youngest Black Woman in the History of the Black Press to Own and Operate a Newspaper, a feat achieved at 23 years old, continues to curate content through her guerilla style coverage of exclusive stories and events. She is currently finishing her memoir: “Hip-Hop, You the Love of My Life,” a guide to self-expression, navigating challenges, being creative, reigning resilient and being unstoppable.
Melody Fox is committed to using her voice and creative outlets to influence hearts and minds.
