Steve Wilson Of ‘The DL Hughley Radio Show’ Launching Several New Comedy Ventures!

STeve Wilson1Another comedian who has been flying under the radar for several years (actually almost 28 years to be exact) is Buffalo native, comedian Steve Wilson. If you are a fan of The DL Hughley Radio Show, then you are probably very familiar with the name. Wilson, who has been on every comedy show that you can think of, is one of the co-hosts of the show along with DL Hughley and Jasmine Sanders.

With that being said, we discovered that Wilson is about to step out and produce some other shows in comedy- and then some. Up first is his new comedy tour with comedian Guy Torry titled The Dr Jeckyll And Mr Hyde Comedy Tour. We hear that Wilson and Torry plan to start out the tour at several smaller venues with the plan to eventually build up the momentum to get to bigger venues. As of this writing they will be at several comedy venues nationally such as The Funny Bone and several Improv’s. The dates for these events will be unveiled shortly.

Wilson is also about to make a quick appearance in an episode of Tosh.o on Comedy Central that we hear is airing in February. According to our sources, Wilson is said to have left quit an impression on host Daniel Tosh and may come back again.

That’s not the only television appearance by Wilson; he is said to be one of six comedians who will all appear on a new special with host Andrew Dice Clay debuting in March. For the special, Wilson will be on stage performing stand up which will be part of the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Series.

Lastly, we hear that Wilson is about to debut something that may change the comedy game; he is about to produce a comedy show in New York in March that will also combine music and travel the country. Unlike other comedy shows that now have music with each show, Wilson is taking his show a little further as he will eventually have each show produced in a city where The DL Hughley Radio Show is broadcast in. The thought here is to bring in his listening audience to the show and to try to capture them in every market (the show is currently being broadcast in 56 cities). The show will have a popular R&B singer to captivate the audience, and since it’s being sponsored by Hennessy, you can expect some major acts to stop by.

What’s on the horizon? Well, we know there are a couple of deals on the table that will drop soon that can’t be mentioned but they should close soon.  In the meantime we will continue to watch Wilson’s comedy career climb.

Earthquake

Earthquake Preps His Nationally Syndicated Radio Show With A Pre-Launch On WBLS!

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:

It’s Official: DL Hughley Brings His Radio Show To The FX Network For Broadcast!

If you recall, a couple of weeks ago we dropped some news that comedian DL Hughley was about to drop a syndicated radio show for the afternoon drive (which is a first time in radio programming history that a comedian would host a show for the afternoons) as we also heard that the show was also going to be a television show.

After a little time passed we heard that Hughley’s deal was going to be with Reach Media and that he was going to be joined by veteran stand up comedian Steve Wilson. Well within the last week several things were confirmed; Wilson joined the show as they officially signed on with Reach Media and prepped the launch of the syndicated show. According to several reports  Jasmine Sanders was to join the crew and she officially signed on last week.

The only remaining element that was not confirmed from our previous reports was the television element and our friends over at Laughspin just released a story stating that DL Hughley officially signed on to broadcast the radio show on the FX Network!

Check out their article below:

In its ever growing enthusiasm to develop original comedy content, FX has just inked a script deal with veteran comedian D.L. Hughley. “We’re doing a show on FX about me having a radio show,” Hughley tells Laughspin, adding the deal was just finalized this week. And if you think the premise sounds familiar, it might be because you heard the news of Hughley’s new syndicated radio show happening in real life. The D.L. Hughley Show — co-hosted by Jasmine Sanders and Steve Wilson — will soft launch on Monday in five cities and will be added to 45 markets shortly after. It will air 3 – 7 pm ET every day. In addition to the new radio gig, Hughley is working on a feature-length for-theaters version of The Endangered Listthe mockumentary that aired on Comedy Central last year and was recently honored with a Peabody award. FX’s new sister channel FXX, premiering Sept. 2, had previously announced it would air re-runs of the comedian’s former show The Hughleys.

DL Hughley news

It’s Official; DL Hughley Lands Syndicated Afternoon Drive Radio Show With Reach Media!

As we reported a couple of weeks ago, comedian DL Hughley has jumped into the radio arena with an afternoon drive time syndicated show. Check out the press release below:

REACH Media Inc. today announced that comedian, author, actor and television personality D.L. Hughley has been signed to host a weekday radio broadcast, with a launch date to be announced in the near future. THE D.L. HUGHLEY SHOW will be a daily themed, music intensive afternoon drive program from 3-7pm ET hosted by one of the brightest comedic minds. The show will be distributed by REACH Media Inc. which currently reaches an audience of over 12 million listeners, predominantly African American, through radio, as well as digital media.

Hughley, ready to take people on a no holds ride of humor and reality in the afternoons, stated, “I’m very excited to get back to radio and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I think radio fits my sensibility. I want to be fast, I want to be funny, I want to be topical. I want to make people laugh a lot and think a little. Some people want to push the envelope – I want to see if I can singe it a little.”

Hughley established himself as a stand-up comedian propelling to stardom with the Original Kings of Comedy Tour and a subsequent movie release. He went on to have a hit television show, The Hughleys, and has followed that up with a successful best-selling book, comedy specials, and television appearances. Known for being astute and politically savvy in true comedian style, D.L. served as host of his own talk show on CNN, D.L. Hughley Breaks the News. In 2013 Hughley was awarded a Peabody Award for his work on The Endangered List, a satirical documentary that sought to get “American black men the same EPA protections afforded snail darters.”

According to REACH Media CEO David Kantor, “D.L. is the right personality to provide a new style of content in afternoon drive time. The D.L. Hughley Show will be engaging and fun, along with great music.”
Cumulus Media Networks will partner with REACH Media Inc. in affiliation and other aspects of the show.
