Joyner extends his listener reach in Chicago with addition of POWER 92
2, 2010) Tom Joyner has extended his broadcast reach on radio when his
syndicated show simulcasts on WPWX-FM POWER 92 (92.3). The Tom Joyner
Morning Show is currently heard on WSRB-FM Soul 106 (106.3) and will now
air on both stations from 5am to 9am CST. Power 92's current morning man
Trey Da Choklit Jok will move to 9am -12noon.
Also, dayparts Shawn Knight will be heard from 12noon-3pm and Sam Sylk
3pm -6pm. The move provides the Tom Joyner Morning Show more expanded
Chicago and Northwest Indiana market coverage which will answer all of
his listeners' requests of more than a year now to have Joyner heard
throughout the entire Chicagoland.
Joyner is overjoyed with the expansion of his show to the sister station
of SOUL 106.3 stating, "Finally listeners don't have to drive with their
computers to hear us when they leave the South Side."
While the outcry from Chicago listeners about his sudden absence from
his previous home station of 13 years flooded emails, Websites, texts
and phone messages a year ago, Joyner always maintained that he would be
back home in "the mothership market" before long.
"Tom Joyner is Chicago Radio!" said Program Director Jay Alan. "He is a
huge voice for our community and we believe a voice this big is a
benefit to all our listeners and that is why the Tom Joyner Morning Show
is being expanded to Power 92!"
Chicago was the first radio market that signed on to the Tom Joyner
Morning Show when the program and its message started, eventually
growing to the more than 100 markets that it serves today, reaching
approximately one in four African-Americans. The Chicago listener
following continues to be strong and his reach throughout the community
is unmatched. Joyner will continue to empower, inform and entertain in
a way that celebrates Black radio.
The nation's #1 syndicated urban morning show, which airs in more than
100 markets reaching nearly 8 million listeners, has distinguished
itself over the years as continuously giving back to its audience with
quality programming, highly popular promotions, special events and
philanthropy. Since 2004, Joyner has awarded millions to nearly 10,000
contest winners and his Foundation has raised more than $60 million to
help keep students in historically black colleges and universities.
The Morning Show with co-hosts Sybil Wilkes, J. Anthony Brown and senior
news analyst Roland Martin, also features "Inside Her Story" with Jacque
Reid; financial advice with Mellody Hobson; political commentary from
Stephanie Robinson and Jeff Johnson; and celebrity news with Jawn
