Television host and attorney Eboni K. Williams announced the launch of her new podcast ‘Holding Court’ available soon on iHeartMedia.
Eboni K. Williams has announced a brand new podcast Holding Court on The Black Effect podcast network featured on iHeartMedia.
The podcast network is a new partnership between iHeartMedia and Charlamagne Tha God dedicated to bringing the most influential and trusted voices in Black culture to the podcasting space, according to a press release. Williams, along with co-host Dustin Ross, will use their airtime to cross-examine cases trending in news and provide teachable moments to navigate the criminal justice system.
“There’s no way around it, the legal cases we hear about in the news are shaping social justice and popular culture. We need to dissect them from a Black perspective in a way that doesn’t hold back. Dustin and I will give you the facts straight and our takes will be highly unfiltered,” said Williams in a provided statement.
Williams earned her J.D. from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. As a practicing lawyer, she specializes in family law and civil litigation, providing legal advice on high-profile divorce, spousal support, and custody cases. The host also worked as a public defender and a private defense attorney representing criminal matters including murders, rapes, high volume drug cases, sex crimes, and federal offenses.
“I’ve been waiting two years to deliver this love child…” she wrote in an announcement on Instagram.
Williams has another high-profile gig on the way. The attorney was recently announced as the newest member of The Real Housewives of New York City, making her the first Black castmember, theGrio reported.
“[I] can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before,” she shared. “Anyone who’s aware of my work knows I don’t hold back. I’m going to keep it just as real here as I do everywhere else,” she said.
Williams believes her background as a lawyer prepared her for a career in television. During an interview with theGrio, she revealed that both professionally and personally, she operates freely and with intent.
“I’ll speak for me. One thing I’m able to do because of the sacrifices of my lineage is I’m able to be way more intentional about romantic partnership, for instance. Right? I’m able to be way more intentional. My mother raised me as a very confident, very business savvy, brilliant, single Black mother. It’s a beautiful thing, but I am in a position now where I can choose to do that, or I can choose to do it a different way. So that’s an opportunity there for me.”
Williams is also currently the host & executive producer of Revolt Black News.
