It’s been a rough couple of years for radio personalities. Programmers, too, for that matter. We don’t have all the answers to every problem air talent faces, but we’re doing our best to help. And that commitment continues with a new weekly radio show called Mornings Across America.
Mornings Across America is a new, weekly live and on-demand streaming show featuring amazing radio personalities each week.
The show is led by Sandy McIlree, host of the syndicated The Sandy Show. Each week, we pick 2-3 cohosts to perform with Sandy in a 30-60 minute entertainment-based talk show.

Mornings Across America debuts today, August 20, 2020, at 1 pm Eastern time.
The first guests are Claudia Jordan and Steve Kramer. Claudia is the host of Out Loud with Claudia Jordan on FoxSoul, and Love & Hip Hop on VH1. You may also remember her from television appearances on The Apprentice, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and Deal or No Deal. Her radio background includes The Rickey Smiley Show and host of her own show on KRNB/Dallas.
Kramer is a top radio and social media personality, most recently at KHTS/San Diego (Channel 933). He also hosts and produces the Certified Mama’s Boy podcast.
Applications are being accepted to appear on the show. I personally review each application, cast the episodes, and coach the personalities before it goes live.
