Well it looks like comedians Sheryl Underwood and DL Hughley won’t be the only comedians spearheading their radio programs for afternoon drive! According to our sources we discovered the news that Earthquake has recently stepped in as afternoon drive time host (3-7PM) on WBLS in New York!
With Sheryl and DL we told you that they both are planning on jumping into new radio territory by being on afternoon drive as no other comedian has ever done that before. No details have emerged about Sheryl, but we discovered that DL signed with Reach Media (a company owned by Tom Joyner) for his new show as he started in New York almost 2 weeks ago and is now officially launched nationally as of this past Monday.
With that news, DL will not be the only comedian on in New York, as Earthquake joined the radio market. As you all already heard from Earthquake in an interview we conducted with him several months ago, ‘Quake had been planning on launching Quake’s House for a nationally syndicated program. He also began guest hosting for The Steve Harvey Morning Show and became very popular with the listening audience during his fill in’s in the morning- whenever Steve couldn’t make the show due to his hectic schedule. At one point we speculated that if Steve ever stepped aside, he would be a perfect fit.
We now hear that Quake is prepping his show as he is in talks with an unknown company to launch his new syndicated program. Stay tuned shortly as we will give you all of the details about the new company and the launch date of the national show.
Here is the interview we did with Earthquake as he discussed his upcoming radio show:
