Donnie McClurkin's Radio Success Leads to 'Praise' Tour
September 2, 2015 at 4:04 AM (PT)
Gospel Singer/Syndicated Radio host DONNIE MCCLURKIN will take his 50-City FESTIVAL Of PRAISE TOUR on the road to support his success at radio. He will have with him FRED HAMMOND, HEZEKIAH WALKER, KIM BURRELL, ISRAEL HOUGHTON, and others to be announced.
Non-tour related events will include performing DECEMBER 4th in LAGOS, NIGERIA and at CARNEGIE HALL in NEW YORK CITY on DECEMBER 9th.
OCEANIC TRADEWINDS MEDIA Pres. GARY BERNSTEIN said, “What better way to celebrate his success at radio than to go out on tour and perform for his fans. I have never seen an Urban formatted radio program not to mention an Inspirationally formatted radio program be the #1 rated program (WEEKDAY’s 5-6a) in NEW YORK, the nation's biggest radio market again and again-- two consecutive #1’s JULY and AUGUST. This really defies all odds in the PPM era which makes it so difficult for niche formats to succeed. Because of all this success, we have decided to expand the programming hours to both WEEKDAYS and WEEKENDS. DONNIE combines inspiration, humor, star-power, and authenticity.”
WBLS/WLIB OM SKIP DILLARD told ALL ACCESS, “DONNIE MCCLURKIN continues to be a force inside Inspirational and Gospel music. His continued #1 success in early MORNING at our station is proof of the love our WBLS listeners have for him.”
MCCLURKIN added, “My show has done amazingly well in reaching #1 in NEW YORK and doing well in so many other places. I'm thankful that this show can reach so many across the country and around the world, and give them great music and information that inspires them in the course of their day to this degree. We're reaching millions and looking to reach millions more.”
