Today we’d like to introduce you to Cassandra Ferguson.
Cassandra, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
About 13 years ago, I was seeking media outlets to promote my women conference Business Women On The Move. After visiting a AM radio station in Harford County, Maryland I was asked a question by the host. Have I ever considered being on radio? I immediately thought of my skill set and qualifications and said no.
It took me 11 years to get the invite again and I made a promise to God I will not say no again. It was during the Baltimore riots I felt a need to pull leadership in from around the world and create a platform for youth to have real conversations.
As the world embraces the new and looks for answers, Cassandra Ferguson, Chief Executive Officer and Visionary of a new innovative and state-of-the-art Corporate Marketplace ministry is ecstatic to announce the launch of Elevation Global Media Group and its subsidiary branches.
Elevation Global Media Group will be a pioneering media organization that connects visionary leaders and world changers globally through radio, podcasts, television, and print. Even with the changes and shifting during the COVID-19 pandemic, Cassandra was still able to birth this unique and extraordinary vision. Operating in the studios of Radio One in Baltimore for four years, Cassandra realized that now would be the perfect time to transition. This led to the birth of Maintain Mondays, which was used to transition Elevate Your Life Radio to online via Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
Ferguson took a leap of faith and acquired a studio/office space in one of Maryland’s elite business districts and was about to begin renovation but that was temporarily halted by COVID19. Although some may look at this as a setback, she looks at it as a time for preparation.
Being brought up in a single-parent household with a father who was mostly in prison during her childhood, Cassandra learned to look adversity in the eye and stand in her unshakable faith. Her track record and history prove that faith fuels her and adversity builds muscle.
The plans for the space will be a 21st-century marketplace state-of-the-art location. Cassandra believes when you give people an excellent space, they produce excellent results. This ministry will also bring job opportunities to local college students who want a chance in media and give others the chance they never had in media.
The mandate on Cassandra’s life is to empower and equip generational leaders for their Kingdom assignment by being the voice of TRUTH. She has been married to Antonio Ferguson for 32 years and is the mother of four and grandma of one. Cassandra is a proven business strategist and 21st century innovator.
One of her life’s verses is Philippians 4:13 Amp
I can do all things [Which He Has Called Me To Do] though him who strengthens and empowers me (to fulfill his purpose – I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency: I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.)
Elevation Global Media Group comprises of Elevate Your Life Radio, Elevate Your Life Tour, Millennial Take Over, and Elevation Rewind. For more information about the ministry and launch, visit www.elevationglobalmediagroup.com or contact us at 443.307.1241.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
No, it has not been. My struggles has been locating resources to help with operational expenses.
Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
I see the industry leaning more towards technology and information will be more accessible.
