About UTS

Urban Trendsetters, LLC

Let Us Put YOUR Business in the Streets!


“There was a void in the urban community and the need for the many positive stories going unheard and drowned out in mainstream media by all the negative news. I believed that our community needed a voice for those stories and individuals that wanted to discuss solutions and not problems and that we needed a publication that would allow our youth to see and hear from individuals in their community that looked like them doing great things and I wanted it to be FREE. Urban Trendsetters News Magazine was created to fill that void and give us that voice. We deliver positive news for positive people.”
