“Just when I thought Launching a Haitian Television Production would be the highlight of my year, it seems the American Market has plans for me as well. Less than 24 hours ago, our team at the Network had an emergency meeting to discuss the news that would be released today. Starting January 2019, I’ll be working as a Talk Show Host on National TV. AFRO of Afrotainment Channels has been picked up by Comcast for national broadcast syndication.” These are the words of Sandy Laborde on her Facebook wall as she expresses excitement.

Afro, is said to have a homogeneous audience varying from Afro Caribbean, African-Americans, Afro Hispanos and Africans.
To have her show “Afro” of the Afrotainment channel syndicated on Comcast is such a great deal because the Global Telecommunications Conglomerate controls almost 40% of the American television industry alone.
