Reach Media’s syndicated radio morning show, “The Tom Joyner Morning Show” will be in Birmingham, Alabama Wednesday morning broadcasting live from the studios of Cox station WBHK-FM. The program is part of Joyner’s efforts to help with tornado relief in his home state. The broadcast will focus on the tornadoes’ aftermath and focus on some of the most pressing needs in hard-hit communities. “Whenever there’s a disaster that has an impact on our audience, directly or indirectly, they immediately look to us to help them,” Joyner said in a prepared statement. “They trust us with donations and we deliver what we promise. This time I’m going to my home state of Alabama where we’ll even be making some of our deliveries in person.”
We’re glad to have Tom come back to help out his native Alabama,” said David Dubose, VP/Market Manger for Cox Media Group. “There’s still a lot of suffering in the greater Birmingham area and we appreciate Tom taking this opportunity to use his platform to help the devastated families.”
Joyner, a Tuskegee Alabama native, has also revived the disaster relief fund on his website, Black America Web, to raise money for people affected by the devastating storms.
