D.L. Hughley signs with REACH Media to host syndicated afternoon drive radio show

(August 13, 2013) 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 Hugley 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.
