900 AM WURD Pays Tribute to Reggie Bryant with Live Broadcast of Funeral Services

The funeral services for radio host, broadcast journalist and founding member of the NABJ, "Dr." Reggie Bryant will be broadcast live on 900 AM WURD and on their live stream today from 11:00am-12:30pm ET. Reggie Bryant was fondly remembered in three articles in the Philadelphia Tribune also, we have linked here.

Reggie Bryant is pictured here with another great radio personality also known as the doctor; Dr. Perri Johnson, who left radio to earned degrees in psychology and music therapy and has authored a book on depression.

"When asked to write about the death of my longtime media mentor, Reggie Bryant, I was aware of the difficult task at hand. In recalling the various roles Bryant held in life, it is his public persona as a Black talk radio host that would ultimately define his life. It was a role he honed from his earliest days on radio and cherished until his last." Click here to read more from Bobbi Booker, Tribune staff writer and former radio producer for Bryant

“He was strong when he needed to be. He cared about people. He was uncompromising in his beliefs and fighting for the community, but he knew when he had fought enough personally and needed to throw his arms around you. He was the person who had the way of kind of getting you to accept the perspective and constructive criticism even when it was kind of hard and never doubting how much he really cared about you.” Click here to read more from Bill Anderson morning host at WURD

“We will miss Reggie because Reggie always pushed to the limits for excellence and unifying the African-American community for positive outcomes.” Read more of reflections from the Philadelphia Tribune President and CEO Robert W. Bogle.
