Real Times Media

Real Times Media (RTM) was established in 2006, but our legacy stretches back over 100 years. We are preservers and purveyors of culture, both past and present. As the parent company to five of the country’s most respected African-American-owned news organizations, the Atlanta Daily World, Atlanta Tribune: The Magazine, the Chicago Defender, the Michigan Chronicle, and the New Pittsburgh Courier, it is our job to maintain the heartbeat of the African American voice.

Being built on the foundation of legacy news brands affords RTM a depth of knowledge and assets that are multi-generational, relevant, and trustworthy. Headquartered in Detroit, Real Times Media remains committed to delivering quality news, events, and entertainment for African American audiences. In addition to our news brands, our enterprises and interests include:

  • Custom programming and niche publishing through Who’s Who In Black, a professional lifestyle brand focused on live and virtual business/social events, content, and marketing services.
  • RTM360°, a marketing and communications consultancy providing strategy, production, activation, and media services.
  • RTM Digital Studios, an unparalleled archive of historical photographs, videos, and film clips of the African American experience available through licensing for advertising, marketing, publishing, and film initiatives.
