Author and social commentator Dr. Michael Eric Dyson launched his new syndicated news/talk radio show, with media titan Oprah Winfrey as his first guest.
The Michael Eric Dyson Show will air Monday through Friday in 18 markets, including Baltimore (WEAA-FM); Atlanta (WCLK-AM); Raleigh-Durham (WSHA-FM and WNCU-FM); Houston (KTSU-FM); and Las Vegas (KCEP-FM).
“It is an honor to be at the helm of a show that is dedicated to providing valuable information, generating discussion about news of the day and the issues which affect our world, and giving a voice to those making a difference,” says Dyson. “There are several topics about which I care deeply – politics, religion, economic policy, arts and culture – which will be regularly represented on the show. I hope that we will grow to become a go-to source for listeners who want to think, reflect and engage.”
The show, produced by the African-American Public Radio Consortium & Baltimore’s WEAA-FM, will feature three segments:
A) Newsmaker guest interviews
B) Roundtable discussions on politics, religion and the economy, as well as a weekly bloggers roundtable
C) Arts and entertainment/culture guest interviews
Other confirmed guests to appear on the show include: Sean “Diddy” Combs, Spike Lee, Hill Harper, Donna Brazile, Samuel L. Jackson and Wendy Kopp, Founder of Teach for America.
