“African-American ownership in media is very important, without it we can’t tell our stories our way” and until we can share our narratives authentically we’ll always be characterized by another’s vision of who we are. In addition, future generations in our community should be striving for ownership and entrepreneurship as it is a key to securing freedom and legacy!”


-Bishop Wayne T. Jackson, CEO of Impact Network

As faith leaders and community advocates in the Detroit- Michigan area for over 30 years, Bishop Wayne T. Jackson and his wife Dr. Beverly Y. Jackson has served the African-American community and inner-city. They have seen the hardships faced by families first-hand, from education, food, safety, housing, finances and over all necessities of life. As pastors they’ve realized that these disparities reach beyond Detroit and echo in other neighborhoods and cities across the US. Through Divine inspiration this husband and wife team felt a call to do something about it, not only for their local community but for the African-American community as a whole.

In 2010, Bishop Wayne T. Jackson and his wife Dr. Beverly Y. Jackson answered that call by starting a television network that would spread positivity and uplift the urban sector in ways that hadn’t yet existed in effort to Impact the total well-being of viewers. The Impact Network started in about 200,000 homes and has since grown to over 90 Million. Impact’s goal is to reach beyond broadcasting and use it’s influence to invest in building the communities it serves.


The Impact Network’s programming is designed to start thoughtful conversations and actively engage participants.

“At Impact, we strive to enrich, empower, engage and entertain, we’re driven to create meaningful media that impacts the lives of our viewers for the better!”
