Issa Rae and Malinda Williams to Co-Host ‘Exhale’ Talk Show

Magic Johnson’s Aspire television channel will expand this summer to include a talk show for African American women. Exhale, set to debut in June, will delve into topics that include family, relationships, careers, money and faith. Similar to The Talk or The View, the roundtable gab fest will be co-hosted by actress Malinda Williams, Awkward Black Girl’s Issa Rae, journalist Angela Burt-Murray, actress and comedian Erin Jackson and author Rene Syler.

“We are thrilled to add Exhale to our lineup of original programming,” said the network’s General Manager Paul Butler. “This fresh, hip and candid new series will enlighten audiences with its broad range of topics relevant to the community,”

This is Aspire’s third original series and will start with eight episodes.
