RADIO ONE Gospel WPRS (PRAISE 104.1) and Urban AC WMMJ (MAJIC 102.3)/WASHINGTON public affairs show host and former TV ONE "NEWS ONE NOW WITH ROLAND MARTIN" correspondent and NBC O&O WRC-TV (NBC 4)/WASHINGTON Assignment Editor EBONY MCMORRIS has been named News and Community Affairs Director for the RADIO ONE WASHINGTON cluster (also including Urban WKYS, Gospel WYCB (SPIRIT 1340), and News-Talk WOL-A (NEWS TALK 1450)). MCMORRIS, who replaces the late SHEILA STEWART, will also report for the syndicated TOM JOYNER MORNING SHOW.
VP/GM ALAN LEINWAND said, "We are so very fortunate to have EBONY moving into this very important position for our cluster in DC. She will play an integral role in helping us deliver a first class news product while also helping grow our community footprint in DC --- as we continue to touch our listeners throughout The DMV."
MCMORRIS said, "Taking over a position held by SHEILA is an honor because she mentored me early in my career and I can't forget her power to connect people. The vision of this company and its staff is unmatched. I look forward to continuing and expanding our footprint in the community."
