Steve Harvey Morning Show Replaces Tom Joyner on Chicago's V103

A shocker in the world of Chicago radio, after 13 years at V103, Tom Joyner will no longer have a radio home in the city he made his claim to fame. The Clear Channel station picks up the Steve Harvey radio show; which they distribute through Premiere Network their syndication company.

Urban AC V103 Chicago (WVAZ) Program Director Derrick Brown has announced that "The Steve Harvey Morning Show" has moved to WVAZ from sister station Urban 107.5 WGCI-FM, beginning Tuesday morning March 24th. The show will air weekday mornings from 5-9a, replacing the Tom Joyner Morning Show. “I feel like V103 just won the lottery! Steve Harvey is an entertainment and marketing juggernaut. There are very few entertainers who have successfully tackled radio, TV, film, stage, online and publishing," said Derrick Brown. “His unique life perspective and riveting content fit V103 like a glove. Being a ‘King of Comedy,’ nobody can beat Steve being funny and I’m absolutely elated that he’s joining our team.” Steve Harvey has been on WGCI since 2007. There will be a slight overlap in the transition.

Steve Harvey will be simulcast on both WVAZ and WGCI until March 31st. No plans have been announced for Harvey's replacement on WGCI.
