Solomon Jones Added to Praise 107.9 Line-Up for New Talk Show ''Your Voice''

Radio One Philadelphia adds Solomon Jones to Praise 107.9 (WPPZ) to host the new show, "Your Voice," airing from 10am-noon, Monday through Saturday. Jones previously was the morning show host for News/Talk 900 AM/96.1 FM WURD.

Radio One Philadelphia Operations Manager Karen Vaughn said, "We want to engage our listeners with not only the inspirational music they love, but the information they need to be socially aware, community engaged and WOKE overall. Solomon is a well-known local radio and media personality and is the perfect fit to provide this new music infused talk show format on Praise."

Jones added, "I'm excited to join Radio One at this crucial time for our community. In the face of political upheaval, police brutality, underfunded education, violence and increasing racism, we desperately need a voice. I'll bring high-powered interviews, community interaction and lots of laughs to the mix. But more than anything, I'll listen, and together we'll put faith into action to bring about the change we need."

Jones replacement at WURD is Rev. Mark Kelly Tyler. Meanwhile Praise 107.9  follows the lead of other Radio One stations that have included midday talk shows within their format. Detroit's Praise 102.7 features veteran personality Mildred Gaddis' mid-morning talk show. Radio One's Cincinnati station Soul 101.5 has a local talk show as well with local radio legend Lincoln Ware.
