Reverend Al Sharpton has taken his weekday syndicated radio show to WLIB 1190 AM. Keeping it Real will be heard live from 1 to 3 p.m. The program focuses on current topics, news, and issues affecting African American communities.
Skip Dillard, operations manager for WBLS/WLIB, states “Reverend Al’s weekday show is a perfect fit for WLIB, a station with a history of both inspiration and information. Rev. Sharpton has a long history with WBLS and WLIB. We’re super-excited to now have him at work with WLIB listeners each weekday!”
Gary Bernstein, Vice President of Programming for Reach Media Inc., attests, “We appreciated the tremendous support from our former affiliation with WWRL, but the opportunity of a live clearance on WLIB from 1p to 3p in the biggest radio market in the country was the motivation for us to make the switch. We are also enhancing what has been a special relationship with our friends at YMF Media and WBLS/WLIB.”
Few political figures have been more visible during the last two decades than Sharpton, the head of the National Action Network. His daily radio show, Keepin’ it Real with Rev. Al Sharpton broadcasts in syndication in more than 40 U.S. markets.
