Clarence Jamil Black (born December 21, 1976) is an African American multi-media personality, who currently resides in Rochester, Michigan where he serves as an on-air talent for both WDFN and Comcast Local. He competed on Survivor: Africa in the fall of 2001.[1]



Clarence Black was a contestant on Survivor: Africa, where he was best known for stealing a can of beans. He was also accused off-camera of taking cherries when everyone else only had one, by Ethan Zohn.

Black did stay around long enough to make the merge. The "beans scandal" separated him from his original tribemates and left him out of the alliance with the eventual final four of Kim Johnson, Lex van den Berghe, Ethan Zohn and Tom Buchanan.

Because he was alienated from the alliance, Black had to focus on the individual challenges in order to stay in the game. In the first immunity challenge after the merge, he lost a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors to Teresa Cooper and removed himself from the challenge (allowing Teresa to win immunity) in the 6th hour of the challenge. Black was eliminated from the competition the next day by a vote of 8-2.


Currently he works as on-air talent with Sportsradio 1130AM WDFN. WDFN is a Clear Channel Detroit station. He has held this position since November 2002. In 2004, Black began hosting his own show "The Clarence Black Show", which he continues to host today. In 2006 Black became the new co-host of both "The 19th Hole" (PGA Golf) and "Football Sunday" (NFL/Detroit Lions pregame). When he is not behind the microphone, he can be found in front of the camera as an on-air talent for regional sports network Comcast Local. Black has been with Comcast Local since 2004, serving as special events host, sideline reporter for high school and college football and a color analyst for college basketball.

Black is a longtime active member of the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association, founded in 1948 by pioneer Tigers announcer Ty Tyson.


Black currently resides in Rochester, Michigan with his wife Kelly and their two children. He is cum laude graduate of Detroit Country Day School in 1994, and also a graduate of Bridgton Academy in 1995, a college preparatory in North Bridgton, Maine. He holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Hillsdale College in 1999. At Hillsdale, he was a member of the Men's basketball team for four years. He is a 2LT in the US Army Signal Corps and attended Signal Basic Officer Leader Course Class 008-11.
