“TikTok radio is something completely new, and we’ve never seen anything like it before, so I’m honored and happy to be a part of it. I love that I express every thought or idea with people right away can be on TikTok all over the world, it’s a turning point for creators like myself. I actually started making TikToks with my daughter to connect more with her but had no idea how diverse it was, until I dove in and start sharing what I’m doing. Listeners can expect a tone they’ve never heard on the radio before – I combine mindfulness, entertainment and culture in a way that resonates with everyone. I’m not here to to be seen, I am here to be felt. ” – HINDZ (@hindzsight)
“TikTok started out as a place where I had the freedom to express my passions and meet people who were interested in building a community. I started in 2019 for fun and it quickly developed into a platform for me to get through motivational Videos to spread joy. Teach black history and culture and create impact by encouraging other creators. The app has challenged me over time to be limitless with my creativity and authenticity, which has inspired people to create their own life positive change. One of the things I am most excited about being selected as one of the first presenters for TikTok Radio is that I am able to encourage and encourage more people, just like me on As a YouTuber who mainly creates content from black culture, I’m especially looking forward to giving voices to music artists, trends and beauties horses that make a huge difference in the app and beyond. One thing I can assure the listeners of TikTok Radio is that I will always bring exactly what I am, with no limits. ” Taylor Cassidy (@taylorcassidyj)
