The Yolanda Adams Morning Show, featuring co-hosts Brother Larry Jones, comedian Marcus Wiley, Bishop Secular, and Minister Anthony Valary, is now airing in New York City on gospel radio station 1190AM WLIB.
“I am very excited about our new line up,” stated Deon Levingston, VP and general manager of WLIB. “It shows the commitment of Inner City Broadcasting Company to WLIB and the gospel format in NYC.”
The program, hosted by the four-time Grammy winner, airs weekday mornings from 6 to 10. New York listeners join a growing audience that currently spans 14 other markets.
“Yolanda’s program is on a major roll,” says Gary Bernstein, president of programming for Syndication One. “There is a great demand for such a positive urban lifestyle program that is appealing to a mass demographic and it is quickly becoming a favorite for both the 25-54 and 18-49 demographics.”
Adams recently scored the biggest ratings in her show’s short history with the fall 2007 Arbitron Ratings book, showing considerable gains in several markets including Atlanta and Raleigh. In Philadelphia she achieved higher ratings than all of her urban competitors in the 18-34 demographic.
The Yolanda Adams Morning Show also airs in Houston, Washington DC, Norfolk, Charlotte, Indianapolis, Nashville, Richmond, Columbus, Cleveland, Augusta, and Rocky Mount.
