ATLANTA Redding News Review- Philadelphia will now be able to hear Rob Redding's "Redding News Review" more days a week on community talker 900 WURD-AM. "We are excited about expanding the opportunity to bring the Rob Redding Show to our listening audience as part of our new WURD after Dark lineup," said WURD Programmer Barbara Grant. "His national perspective and provocative opinions will keep us connected to big issues, particularly as we head into the historic re-election bid of President Obama. Listeners will be able to hear Rob Monday through Thursday as well as Sunday evenings to add spice to their late night program options in Philadelphia."

"WURD is a top community radio station, owned by a top family in a top 10 market," Redding said. "We are looking forward to continuing to provide top content to WURD, and I thank Programmer Barbra Grant and President Sara Lomax-Reese for this amazing opportunity."

The radio station is scheduled to start running Redding's show next Monday through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. The station already runs his show from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Sunday nights.

WURD becomes the sixth weekday affiliate, behind stations in Atlanta, Cleveland, Raleigh, NC, Myrtle Beach, SC and Natchitoches, LA.

What is more, WAOK-AM in Atlanta today begins running the Redding's show at an earlier time, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Heritage talker KNOC-AM, in Natchitoches, LA., next week will also move the show up to an air time of 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. CT. ...Read more

Rob Redding, who recently spoke during an Occupy Atlanta protest, has been a vocal critic of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. Atlanta Journal Constitution political cartoonist Mike Luckovich captures the sense of disappointment many people in Atlanta felt over Mayor Reed's recent decision to use police force to evict the protesters from Woodruff Park. In the cartoon, Reed sits behind a desk grappling to explain his decision to Martin Luther King's image on the newly opened MLK Memorial in Washington, D.C.
