Harvey returns to LA airwaves


Stevie Wonder’s KJLH-FM Los Angeles will put “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” back on in LA in the morning drive slot. The syndicated show was dropped earlier this year by KDAY-FM.

Harvey’s daily show originates from WBLS-FM New York and is distributed nationally by Premiere Radio Networks. The show will join the KJLH lineup effective August 10th, airing 6-10 am LA time.

“Having a mega star such as Steve Harvey can only enhance what we do at KJLH in the Los Angeles area. I’m extremely excited about the possibilities,” said KJLH Program Director Aundrae Russell.

“The Steve Harvey Morning Show’s impressive success in Los Angeles and across the nation makes this a mutually shrewd and exciting opportunity,” added KJLH Executive Vice President Vinny Brown.

According to Premiere, The Steve Harvey Morning Show combines heart, humor and music, along with celebrities from the world of sports and entertainment. Harvey is joined on the show by Shirley Strawberry, Carla Ferrell and his “Nephew Tommy.”

The nationally syndicated program is heard on more than 60 radio stations by approximately six million weekly listeners. Premiere says it’s the number-one syndicated morning show in the top 25 metro markets with Persons 12+, Adults 25-54, Adults 18-34, Adults 18-49 and Women 25-54 (Source: Arbitron, WI’09, MSA, Exact Times, AQH T 25 Metros).
