Millennial-targeted evening programming rounds out 2017 schedule
WURD Radio, owner and operator of 900AM-WURD, Pennsylvania’s only Black talk radio station, today announced a new weekday evening lineup for 2017.
The most notable update is the launch of The Lounge (7 p.m. – 10 p.m. weeknights), a daily wrap-up formatted program tailored primarily to millennials, treating listeners to a digest of the top pop culture, politics, and sports headlines. The show is hosted by Keaton Nichols, co-creator of the successful “WURD Up” show and former producer of the station’s popular morning drive-time news program, “Wake Up With WURD.”
In addition, 900AM-WURD’s new lineup reflects the return of the rebroadcasts of “Wake Up With WURD” and “The MOJO,” beginning at 10 p.m. – an overnight repeat block favorite with local listeners on the late-night shift.
The full, updated schedule is viewable at 900amwurd.com. Most weekday shows remain in their current timeslots, including news and information staples “Daybreak at WURD,” hosted by Thera Martin (6 a.m. – 7 a.m.); “Wake Up With WURD,” hosted by Solomon Jones (7 a.m. – 10 a.m.); “The MOJO,” hosted by Stef Renée (10 a.m. – 1 p.m.); and “The Nick Taliaferro Show” (Tuesday through Thursday, 4 p.m. – 7 p.m.).

Al Sharpton” (Monday through Thursday, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.); “Talking Drumline,” hosted by Barbara Grant (Monday, 4 p.m. – 7 p.m.); “The Shomari Show,” hosted by Brother Shomari (Friday, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.); “Laborers Live,” hosted by organized labor leaders Sam Staten Jr., Juan Ramos & Ryan Boyer (Friday, 4 p.m. – 5 p.m.); and “Urban Insight,” hosted by Rev.
