Justin Hunte Joins Ambrosia For Heads To Launch Its Original Video Programming Division
Ambrosia For Heads (AFH) is pleased to announce the appointment of Justin Hunte as its Head of Video Production & Development. In the newly created position, Hunte will launch and run AFH’s original video content division. Hunte’s popular and acclaimed “TBD” show will serve as the flagship program for the new division, and will be followed by several other short form franchises. In his role, Hunte also will develop long form video content for AFH.
Formerly Editor-in-Chief of HipHopDX, Hunte, known as The Company Man, was the architect behind DX’s video platform and creator of popular series, #DXBreakdown. Hunte is also a weekly contributor to Shade45’s “All Out Show” on SiriusXM and has been featured on Revolt TV’s “Revolt Live,” as well as in Billboard magazine.
“I’ve been a fan of Justin’s for years,” said Reginald Williams, Founder & CEO of Ambrosia For Heads. “The depth and intelligence of his journalism shows the highest regard for Hip-Hop culture and embodies everything Ambrosia For Heads aspires to be. Together with Jake Paine, AFH’s Editor In Chief, the future of our content could not be in better hands.”
Paine added of his reunion with Hunte, “Since meeting Justin in 2009, I am constantly inspired by his enthusiasm for Hip-Hop. He has an incredible knack for making people feel excited and deeply connected through breakdowns and discussions. I am proud to be working again with someone who has carved such a strong niche in this space. AFH is committed to showcasing the best in Hip-Hop music and culture through new platforms and media, and Justin is a key addition to our team.”
In 2017, Hunte participated in a debate at the prestigious Oxford Union on whether Kanye West is more relevant than William Shakespeare. A graduate of Wofford College, Hunte spent 5 years working in investment banking at Bank Of America/Merrill Lynch and has covered music, politics, and culture for numerous publications. He will continue to be based in Los Angeles, California.
“Aligning with AFH is serendipitous in a number of ways,” said Hunte. “Not only is the opportunity to once again work with one of my early mentors, Jake Paine, too awesome to pass up, but coupled with the chance to learn from Reggie Williams who I’ve admired for years is incredibly exciting. Both Reg and Paine have a remarkable vision for the AFH network and I’m thrilled to join them in crafting something extraordinary. It’s all happening!”
