Omar Rashada is an award winning play writer and host of (2) local talk shows, “Community Issues” and “Artist”. Omar was born and raised in the city of Wilmington Delaware attended John Dickson High school, then Delaware Technical Community College where he received his Associate degree in Human Services. He also received a Bachelor’s degree from Wilmington University majoring in Behavioral Science then later received his Master’s degree in counseling from Springfield College. Omar also works for Horizon House in Delaware as a Mental Health Therapist.
He’s been a television host for (15) years and his show, “Artist” not only showcases the local talents of everyone from poets to musicians but give them the platform to share some of their personal experiences. Now on the other side of the spectrum is his show, “Community Issues”, where guest are given the opportunity to discuss matters that have a profound affect in the community. The shows both air on Comcast channel 28 every 1st, 3rd and 5th Sunday of the month at 11:30 in the morning. Omar’s goal is to inform, uplift and inspire those who tune in to the shows never taking any subject lightly. Today being a talk show host is much more than what he envisioned it to be since starting back in 1998. He stated that, “Since starting out my drive and motivation to educate the community has really been much more of a focal point as well as having diversified guest.” This of course he feels is an excellent way to educate the community about different cultures and ethnic groups. Now like any television host there’s challenges and for Omar the most challenging thing has been out of pocket expenses or finding suitable sponsors to keep the shows on air. He often have fund raisers to somewhat relieve himself of those financial burdens but can always use sponsors.
The most gratifying thing about being a host for Omar he says is providing a platform for the youth. He states that in most cases our youth get more negative media than positive, so he’s always moved when being able to highlight their accomplishments or showcase their talents. In addition, he also states that the positive feedback he gets from the community is also truly gratifying. Since becoming a television host Omar’s most memorable shows he says has been those surrounding the youth. Now besides having guest who may be short with answers or a little long winded, he has been fortunate enough not to experience any shows that would be archived as the least memorable.
In (5) years Omar’s ideal goal is to move from lease access to a national network. He says that he would love to bring artist from all over the world on to his show, “Artist” and would very much enjoy the opportunity to interview the world’s most famous professors, leaders and politicians on the show, “Community Issues”. He also considered radio as another viable platform to possibly delve into in the near future. Omar’s advice to those aspiring to be a play writer or television host is to observe and learn from all on air television personalities. In addition, he advises those to take courses or attend workshops and seminars. Now for those looking to contact Omar Rashada to either be a guest on his shows or become a sponsor can reach him via email email@example.com or phone: (302)-743-2067.
