NEW YORK, October 30, 2014 Westwood One announces that President Barack Obama will join its syndicated Café Mocha Radio Show this Saturday, November 1, 2014, to discuss the importance of making ‘smarter’ decisions by voting to better our communities.  The President has an animated and insightful conversation with show hosts Loni Love, Mc Lyte, and Angelique Perrin.  Hear a clip from the interview here.

Inspired by Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Café Mocha Radio created the GET SMART initiative, a total wellness, month-long movement designed to empower women to make smarter decisions in every aspect of their lives.  Each week during this month, the show has featured experts on relationships, health, finance, community service, and entrepreneurship, as well as guest celebrity advisors who also participate in “post smart” twitter parties which have generated more than 45.7 million impressions to date.

The GET SMART initiative has been integrated across all Café Mocha platforms, which include the radio show’s Mocha Mavens blogger network. Visit for more information.
