Reach Media has signed Grammy-nominated, three-time Stellar Award winner and six-time ASCAP award winning songwriter and Gospel artist James Fortune to host an evening radio show (7p-11p) beginning May 28. Fortune will also host an Inspirational weekend syndicated radio show, “The Spirit Top 15 Inspirational Countdown.” The new shows will feature Gospel and inspirational music and are set to debut on 29 affiliate stations.
Reach Senior VP/Programming Gary Bernstein said, “James is an already proven commodity for us. We always have requests for James to come back on the airwaves after doing on air stints in either mornings or evenings. He is totally focused on making this next chapter in his life a memorable one for all our listeners!”
Radio One Inspiration Format Director Elroy Smith added, “After James Fortune filled in for Yolanda Adams while she was on vacation, I couldn’t figure out why James was such a natural at this radio thing until he shared with me that he studied communications while in college. He will bring a warm, engaging and a compelling presentation to the airwaves. This is a very exciting time for his fans to hear James do a style of radio that they will fall in love with.”
Fortune said about being on air, “I look forward to sharing an uplifting journey of music, spiritual encouragement and more with listeners on the evening drive, and feel blessed to join you for many lively evenings in store!”
