“Honored is an understatement,” wrote BTGM host Will Lucas in a post shared to Instagram. “I’m grateful beyond measure.”

Blavity CEO and co-founder Morgan DeBaun also took to social media to celebrate the news.

“We’ve been on the road together spreading the good word about tech for over 5 years now and this recognition for your work on @blacktechgreenmoney is so well deserved,” wrote DeBaun of Lucas’ determination via Instagram. “It’s a grind to create weekly podcast content that’s edutainment and not just gossip or celeb. You’ve stayed focused and true to the brand!”

Continued Success

BTGM has continuously been a safe space for all things tech and business.

As previously reported by AfroTech, in 2021, a partnership with The Black Effect Podcast Network — Charlamagne Tha God’s iHeartMedia podcast network — was formed to distribute BTGM.

“Black Tech Green Money is a podcast for us, by us—designed to help us find our path to wealth and legacy in tech,” said Lucas at the time. “With Charlamagne and The Black Effect Podcast Network, we’re set up to reach so many more people all over the world.”

Not only is the platform striving to reach more people than ever before, but it is being recognized for the work it has already done for the community.

“I’m super thankful to everyone who’s cheered me on, listened to my words, and supported my work,” continued Lucas in the post shared Saturday (Jan. 14). “This nomination for an @naacpimageawards for my efforts in making tech more accessible to Black people is humbling. I love my work and consider it a privilege that I get to do what I do everyday.”
