Dee Hill has been helping put the “Hot” in Hotlanta for more than 15 years. Her entrepreneurial spirit has made her one of the city’s leading media personalities, alongside a number of self-launched ventures that demonstrate her savvy, ambition and keen ability to execute success.
Dee’s career is helmed as the Creator & Owner of Dee Hill Designs, which launched in 2004. Her clothing line has been featured in regional runway fashion shows, featured in indie film “My Line,” and showcased on Atlanta television outlets, including WTJH (Channel 24). A producer at that station was so impressed with her camera-ready persona that he awarded Dee her own TV show, “Dee Hill & Friends,” in which she interviewed Atlanta’s top designers, make-up artists and other trendsetters.
Furthering her media skills, she also worked behind the camera on a number of local TV programs at Channel 24, including “The Alley Pat Show,” “Chicks That Fix Cars” and “The Caribbean Connection.” Wanting to further expand her voice in the region, Dee then launched “The Dee Hill Show” on WAEC-AM (Love 860), which continues to expand its reach and audience every Saturday night, from 7-8 p.m.
In addition, in 1999, Dee created “Atlanta Area Connection,” a print and online magazine that showcases local artists and businesses, while providing an outlet for the Black community to socialize and network. And, as Founder & CEO of the Pink Society, she has assembled a membership of 500+ members, whose mission is to provide a forum for area Women of Color to network and give back to the community, where “ambitious women help other women.”
Dee was a contestant in the 2008 Twinkie Awards, has been profiled in Atlanta’s arts newspaper “Creative Loafing” and A.T.A. magazine, and is an active member of non-profit organization Got Passion, devoted to helping teens.
