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.
