Watch Muhammed Ali's Memorial Service Live

Bounce TV, BET and TV One have announced they will all broadcast Muhammad Ali’s memorial service this Friday, June 10. Bounce TV’s coverage, uninterrupted and commercial-free, will begin at 9 AM ET. It will start with a procession through the streets of Ali’s hometown of Louisville, which is scheduled to pass through his childhood neighborhood and include the Muhammad Ali Center. Between the procession and the service, Bounce will screen The Greatest, the 1977 movie starring Ali as himself.

BET News correspondent Marc Lamont Hill will anchor live coverage of the memorial service and will be joined in studio by special guests for commentary. They will broadcast an encore airing of BET News’ “The Truth Series” documentary “Muhammad Ali: The People’s Champ” at 1PM ET on BET and Centric.

TV One’s coverage starts at 2 PM when Ali’s memorial service begins at Louisville’s KFC Yum! Center. Roland S. Martin, host of the channel’s “News One Now,” will anchor coverage from the show’s Washington D.C. studios, and will be joined by guest panelists.
Ali personally planned his own funeral service, in which former President Bill Clinton will give a eulogy, and insisted that tickets be free to the general public. Demand for the 15,000 seats in the stadium predictably outpaced supply, which has led to online scalping of the tickets.Los Angeles residents will be able to watch the service at the California African American Museum conference center. The event is free and open to the public.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped.
