Reese & K-Mac created Salute To Champions in 2018 to recognize influential African-Americans in the local area during Black History Month. Throughout the month of February, Reese & K-Mac highlight each recipient on their social media channels and interview each recipient on their show, The Sports Shop. Additionally, Capitol Broadcasting Company highlights details of the recipients as well as the recognition luncheon that takes place at the end of the month at the PNC Arena.
Salute To Champion recipients are 20-25 African-Americans who have demonstrated significant achievements in their respective fields and/or paved the way for others. The individual areas that recognized are Education/Business, Politics/Community and Sports/Entertainment. Individuals recognized will have some association with the state of North Carolina.
A big thank you to all of our sponsors for this celebration each year. Sponsors allow us to recognize our recipients in a world-class way. Contact us if you are interested in becoming a sponsor for future Salute To Champion events.
