WHO IS DONI GLOVER?
DONI M. GLOVER is the founder of DMGlobal Marketing & PR, the Creator of www.bmorenews.com. BMORENEWS.com was founded in 2002 and based in the DMV (Washington, DC, Maryland, Northern Virginia). While its core constituency is college-educated African American homeowners and entrepreneurs, BMORENEWS also touches 140 nations around the world each month.
Since inception, BMORENEWS has become a national model for black news coverage, including reports from Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. From DC’s City Hall to Annapolis, BMORENEWS.com has covered the Obama White House nearly a dozen times.

But it doesn’t stop there. Glover has taken his media access a step further. And that’s where his 9-year old marketing and Public Relation’s firm, DMGlobal, comes into play. DMGlobal’s mantra is that it’s one thing to create an opportunity for one’s self; it is another to also create opportunities for others.
Through DMGlobal, clients gain media access as well as relationships with the “right people”. From Tavis Smiley to LA-based “Turning Point Magazine” to a litany of politicians and entrepreneurs, DMGlobal has become the marketing firm’s marketing firm – especially in the black community – especially in the DMV. DMGlobal’s client list includes community groups, statewide elected officials, government agencies, non-profits, corporations, small businesses, lawyers, authors, and artists.
In all, Doni Glover is the quintessential 21st century e-media and e-marketing entrepreneur/ultimate networker. A pretty well-connected journalist, he has continuously opted to tell the story from an Afrocentric and all the while human standpoint. His is a reputation of helping the underdog. From the streets to the suites, this former community newspaper editor has risen through the ranks to become one of America’s premier “backpack journalists” and media entrepreneurs.
From his weekly radio show on Radio One’s WOLB 1010 AM to his daily updates on his pride and joy, www.BMORENEWS.com, to providing political analysis on Baltimore’s NBC affiliate to his regularbusiness networking events - Glover touches thousands every week. Add-in social media, and there are thousands more whom he engages with provocative conversations intended to educate, inform, and inspire humanity. His primary agenda is black business, public education (especially in majority-minority communities), ex-offender services, affordable housing, and universal access to healthcare.
An ardent community activist at heart, Glover’s influence, particularly in the political realm, increases with each passing day.
