About us

Welcome to Broadcast Your Love

Welcome to Broadcast Your Love, a 501 (c) 3 whose humble beginnings from a group of dedicated family members and friends, of broadcast journalist, Thea Williams-Douglas, have motivated us to achieve our goal of providing programs and services to those struggling with serious life challenges and facing adverse social and economic conditions. We’ve pledged to use effective communication skills to deliver programs and services focusing on those in distressed, hopeless situations and facilitate social and economic benefits to communities in which we serve.

Our Mission
To inspire and encourage healthy living and wellness by developing positive communications skills, self-awareness and resiliency in women and youth whose lives have been affected by terminal illness; young adults seeking higher education in the field of communications; and women in underserved communities seeking access to behavior health information and resources.

Our Vision
Through the utilization of effective communications skills, we intend to develop healthy communities by focusing on the mental and physical well being of women and youth.

Our Inspiration – Thea Williams-Douglas
BYL was founded to continue the community work and efforts of local journalist, Thea E. Williams-Douglas.

She spent the last 15 years of her career as the Executive Producer of the Austin, Texas ABC affiliate, KVUE’s morning and midday newscasts, and also taught at Austin Community College. Williams-Douglas, who dedicated her life to her two children as well as mentoring and working to make a difference in the lives of those in under-served communities, lost a year-long battle with breast cancer in September, 2010.
