Name: Mia Tyus
Occupation: Host of the "Keeping it Real" show for the Cromwell Radio Group on Magic 95.5
Place of residence: Decatur
You were born and raised in Decatur. What's your favorite thing about living here?
I love the support in this community. That's important to me, because I'm a firm believer that we all need each other. In this community, there's literally a sense of family. There's a niceness that goes on everywhere, and that's what I love about it.
What's the best thing about hosting your own radio show?
You have free articles remaining.
I feel like my reach is farther when it comes to empowering and educating the community. I feel like my job is a ministry, and with radio, I'm able to reach out to a wide range of people.
Why do you value community engagement?
That's important, because I don't think we can do this thing called life without other people. I know that I need people, and I just feel like this is home.
Outside of the recording booth, what are some other things that you'd like to do for the community?
I'd love to host a couples' conference. Once a month, maybe we'd host a date night, where all of the couples get together and go out together. I think dating is critical to a healthy relationship. My husband and I like to do out-of-the-box dates, and keep things interesting! It helps us reconnect with each other, and always keep in mind why we like each other. I just think that's really, really important to society.
Do you have any favorite activities?
I love to travel. I also love going to concerts. That's one of the things that my husband and I do a lot of. I also love to spend family time with my kids.
