Sunday Morning Praise

For over 50 years, Rev. Louise Williams Bishop - dubbed the Queen of the Airwaves - has achieved an incredible degree of personal success in three separate, but related careers – radio, the ministry and politics. The theme that runs through all her work and music is her desire to bring inspiration and assistance to those people in need. She has used this forum to inform and unite people around social, civic and religious issues; to advocate for services for the poor, including job search; and to bring the message of political leaders to the people. Bishop was credited with keeping Philadelphia calm following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King in 1968.  Her program was consistently an institution in the Philadelphia media market.
