Rising Star award
June 2nd, 2009
James DuBose (’90), CEO of DuBose Entertainment, will receive the Rising Star Award at the 35th Annual Awards Dinner in recognition of Black Music Month. The event is sponsored by the Black Business Association and takes place June 4 in Los Angeles.
DuBose, a native of Greensboro, NC, has spent over 18 years in television production and believes his creativity, determination and ability to understand his audience have served him well. He has been executive producer for several shows including his third season of “Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is.” He has several shows in development with artists, celebrities and sports figures.
DuBose earned a degree in broadcast communication under the mentorship of Mary Dalton, associate professor of communication. “As far as my Wake Forest experience, it’s really simple,” he says. “I had the very best professor, mentor and friend who taught me not just about television and radio production, but to build relationships within business, match that with a great work ethic and unwavering faith in God, and you will have success.”
