In the race to land a job after graduation, some students can only dream of one day hosting a television show. But there was Tej Joshi, B.S.C. ’19, right as he was graduating from the University of Miami, the host of SoKY Sunrise, the morning show for south-central Kentucky’s NBC affiliate television station, WNKY 40.
“It’s a really fun show that I’m happy to be a part of,” said Joshi.

Happy to be Nappy, a music video created by a class of University of Miami School of Communication graduate students, is exactly what it sounds like. It’s uplifting. It’s empowering. It’s a piece of film that embraces, with open and grooving arms, black culture—and specifically black hair.
