In January 2012, Singletary was part of the cast for "The Revolution," a daytime program on ABC. She was the show's financial expert and did regular money segments. For two years, Singletary was host of her own national television program "Singletary Says" on TV One.

In 2011, "Spend Well, Live Rich with Michelle Singletary," an hour-long program, premiered on the PBS station WNED-TV Buffalo/Toronto.

For several years, Singletary was a regular personal finance contributor for National Public Radio's afternoon program "Day To Day."

She has also appeared on "Meet The Press."

As part of her commitment to community service, Singletary volunteers as the director of "Prosperity Partners Ministry," a financial program she founded at her church, First Baptist Church of Glenarden (FBCG), in which women and men, who handle their money well, mentor others who are having financial challenges.
Singletary and her husband, Kevin, also volunteer in Maryland prisons to teach financial literacy to male and female prison inmates involved in a prerelease program. At FBCG's The Institutes, Singletary and her husband teach a class called "Mastering Money In Marriage." In 2010, Singletary was named Ministry Leader of the Year at FBCG, one of the largest churches in Prince George's County with more than 15,000 members. She was recognized for her direction of Prosperity Partners and her prison volunteer work.
