Joyner Returns To The Air In Chicago
April 20, 2009 at 1:10 PM (PT)
As first predicted on ALL ACCESS (NET NEWS 4/10), CRAWFORD BROADCASTING Urban AC WSRB (SOUL106.3)/CHICAGO is the new home for THE TOM JOYNER MORNING SHOW. REACH MEDIA has agreed to provide a more customized version of the morning show for the station. JOYNER returns to the air on WSRB WEDNESDAY APRIL 22nd 5-9a weekdays and his weekend show, “RIGHT BACK ATCHA,” will be heard SATURDAYS from 9-11a.
While the outcry from the CHICAGO audience when JOYNER was dropped from CLEAR CHANNEL Urban AC WVAZ (V-103) generated e-mails, texts, phone messages and websites, JOYNER insisted he would return to CHICAGO, the first radio market to sign on to THE TOM JOYNER MORNING SHOW 13 years ago.
“Thank you CHICAGO and all our friends and family from all over the country, “ said JOYNER. “You have written. You have tweeted and your activism has made a difference in a big way. We are going back on the air and if I could hug and thank each and every one of you individually, I would. Our new home in CHICAGO is SOUL 106.3 FM.”
“TOM is a cornerstone and a true light for the people in CHICAGO, which is very much in line with our goals and commitment from WSRB/WYRB,” said TAFT HARRIS, WSRB GM. “We’re confident that TOM will continue to empower, inform and entertain in a way that celebrates Black Radio ."
