Mo Ivory is an Attorney, Professor of Law, Radio and Television Personality, Speaker, Host and Community Advocate.

 

You can often see her on television networks such as CNN, HLN, MSNBC, Fox and TVOne offering her commentary on news items of the day and specifically on legal cases that have rocked our nation.  On the radio side, Mo is currently the co-host of the show “Afternoons with Tony, Mo & George” on WHUR 96.3 in Washington, DC which airs daily from 3pm-7pm.  She is also the host of “The Mo Ivory Show” on SiriusXM Radio and teaches Entertainment Law at Howard University School of Law.

 

Prior to accepting her current position at WHUR, Mo lived in Atlanta and was a member of the morning radio team on CBS’ V-103FM.  She also hosted the “The Mo Ivory Show” on News/Talk 1380 WAOK. Mo got her start in radio in Philadelphia.  At that time, Mo was a young practicing attorney when she was approached to audition for a radio show.  The audition was on a Thursday and she signed a contract (which she negotiated herself) on Friday and began her radio career that next Monday.  

 

From 2002-2007, Mo was President and General Counsel of Ivory Properties, a boutique real estate construction and development firm she founded. In 2008, Mo moved back to New York City where she was raised, to serve as chief of staff to the executive vice president of Warner Music Group.  Later that year, Mo served as a volunteer for Obama for America Campaign and raised enough money to custom outfit a coach bus, known as “Mo’s Voting Party Bus” filled it with her celebrity friends and for one week stopped at all of the colleges in Atlanta, GA…transporting more than 12,000 students to early voting locations.  She duplicated that process for numerous other political campaigns.

 

Raised in New York City, Ms. Ivory graduated from Spelman College with a degree in Political Science and earned her law degree from Temple University School of Law.  Ms. Ivory is a proud member of National Association of Black Journalists, Georgia & Pennsylvania Bar Association, Spelman College Alumni Association, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, Jack and Jill of America and serves on the Marketing Advisory Board of the Civil and Human Rights Museum in Atlanta, GA.  She has been honored and recognized by numerous business and civic organizations for her service and community involvement.
