Erica Campbell: Replacing Yolanda Adams With New Morning Radio Show

On the heels of breaking the news that “The Yolanda Adams Morning Show” had been canceled by Reach Media/Radio One, the company has formally announced the show that will replace the syndicated Gospel radio program.

Starting on May 10, Reach Media/Radio One will premiere “Get Up! Mornings With Erica Campbell,” a new daily radio program fronted by Mary Mary singer Erica Campbell.

Reach Media logo“I’m grateful to Reach Media, Radio One…and Warryn Campbell, CEO of My Block Records, for believing in me and my ability to inspire America to ‘Get Up,’” the Grammy winner said in a statement.

At the time of our original report on Yolanda Adams’ show ending, was already aware that Erica had signed on to be the new morning show host. As a courtesy due to our personal relationship with the star of WE TV’s “Mary Mary,” we withheld the information and just posted an image of the co-hosts with “The Yolanda Adams Morning Show” with Erica instead.

The irony of “Get Up! Mornings With Erica Campbell” replacing “The Yolanda Adams Morning Show” is that on April 9, 2015, comedian Marcus D. Wiley and co-host Anthony “AV” Valary of Yolanda’s show criticized the Stellar Awards because Erica won Artist of the Year.  Many felt segment was inappropriate – especially from a Christian-based radio program and one fronted by a fellow artist at that.

Now, just over a year later, Erica is replacing the recently canceled radio program with a morning show of her own.

Erica’s debut as a radio show host further cements the Inglewood, Calif.-native’s impact as a solo star outside of Mary Mary.

On March 25, 2014, Erica made her solo debut with her album “Help” that included the hit singles “A Lil More Jesus” and the title track, which featured Christian rapper Lecrae.

On March 31, 2015, her label My Block in partnership with eOne Entertainment released “Help 2.0” and the revamped version of the CD included two more singles, “More Love” and “I Luh God,” which featured Big Shizz.

Earlier this year, the 43-year-old singer also premiered a new high-end hair extension line called Erica By Erica Campbell.
