The D.L. Hughley Show, hosted by D.L. Hughley with co-hosts Jasmine Sanders and Steve Wilson, began nationwide this week, from 3–7 p.m. ET. The show starts in 39 markets including Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Kansas City, Memphis, Nashville, New Orleans and Seattle.
Comedian, actor Hughley, the program’s host and namesake, said in a release that he hoped to make his radio style a mix of humor and topical discussion, along with music. “Some people want to push the envelope — I want to see if I can singe it a little.”
The show is distributed by Reach Media Inc., which describes itself as “a leading cross-platform media company with networks and syndicated talent reaching a predominantly adult African-American audience of 12 million on a weekly basis.” It is partnering with Cumulus Media Networks in affiliation and other aspects of the show, a release says.
