Decisive Media is proud to announce Emmy award-winning ABC News Anchor John Quiñones will join award-winning actress Phylicia Rashad as the co-hosts of the 16th Annual Urban Wheel Awards.

|

DETROIT -- John Quiñones is the Emmy Award-winning co-anchor of ABC newsmagazine "Primetime" and has been with the network nearly 25 years. He is the sole anchor of the "Primetime" series "What Would You Do?," one of the highest-rated newsmagazine franchises of recent years. During his tenure he has reported extensively for ABC News, predominantly serving as a correspondent for "Primetime" and "20/20."

While Quiñones was covering the Chilean Miners' disaster last year, he was the first journalist out of thousands to get an exclusive interview with the first survivor (Mario Sepulveda) who spoke about the miners' horrendous ordeal. Other recent headline-making interviews include an exclusive with singer/actor Marc Anthony who, for the first time, spoke about his separation and pending divorce from Jennifer Lopez. And now, he's hosting the Urban Wheel Awards.

Whether she is bringing laughter to millions of television viewers around the world, moving theatre-goers to tears, thrilling movie fans, offering new insights to students by teaching Master Classes at renowned learning institutions that include Howard University, Julliard, and Carnegie Mellon, serving on Boards of prestigious organizations, or breaking new ground as a director, Phylicia Rashad (photo by Matthew Jordan Smith) is one of the entertainment world's most extraordinary performing artists.

A native of Houston, Texas, Rashad graduated Magna Cum Laude from Howard University. A versatile performer, Rashad became a household name when she portrayed "Claire Huxtable" on "The Cosby Show," a character whose appeal has earned her numerous honors and awards for over two decades. She teamed up with Bill Cosby in later years on television as "Ruth Lucas" on "Cosby."

The 16th Annual Urban Wheel Awards will be held on Sunday, January 8, 2011 in the Sound Board theater at the MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit to benefit the Emerging Diversity Education Fund.

EDEF provides scholarships for students of color pursuing degrees leading to careers in either the automotive, communications, or green industries. If that's you, or if you know of someone who fits that description, download an application, complete it and return it before the application deadline of December 16, 2011.

The Urban Wheel Awards event, hosted by Decisive Media, has been named the Official Multicultural Event of Detroit's North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) by the 2012 NAIAS Executive Committee. This year's automotive manufacturer sponsors include; Toyota, Hyundai, GM, Ford, BMW, Chrysler, Kia, Nissan, Honda, and Volvo.

At 4 p.m. on January 8th, a special reception will be held to honor Bill Perkins, the 2011 chair of the North American International Auto Show. Perkins is the first African-American to lead the nation's largest and most prestigious auto show.

Urban Wheel Award tickets are available at all Ticketmaster outlets and at the Sound Board theatre's box office.
