Entrepreneur and program director Barry Mayo was born on June 30, 1952 in New York City. In the 1970s, he attended the School of Communications at Howard University.

In 1988, he and partners founded Broadcast Partners. Seven years later, Mayo sold his share of Broadcast Partners and founded Mayomedia, a media consulting firm. He spearheaded creation of the National Jazz Museum in Chicago. In 1995, he received the Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the National Black Programmers’ Coalition.
