HOUSTON — The Urban Edge Network (UEN) and HBCU+ platform have entered a three-year contract extension with the Denny's Orange Blossom Classic (OBC). The exclusive partnership will allow UEN to stream the OBC ancillary events in Miami Gardens on the HBCU+ app. Those events include the Battle of the Bands, Coaches Press Conference, business seminars,  etc.

"We are thrilled to announce the extension of our broadcast streaming with the Orange Blossom Classic, "Hardy Pelt, Founding member and Chief Revenue Officer of Urban Edge Network, said. "This renewed collaboration not only amplifies our commitment to showcasing HBCU excellence but also offers advertisers enhanced access to the vibrant HBCU community through strategic media placement and engaging activations. We look forward to continuing to celebrate and uplift the remarkable achievements within our HBCU family."

HBCU programming control is another aspect that executive director Kendra Bulluck-Major of the Orange Blossom Classic recognized.
