Wake Up With WURD, hosted by Rev. Mark Kelly Tyler, Ph.D., takes on national issues confronting the Black community from a uniquely Philadelphian perspective and airs Monday – Friday from 7am – 10am. Rev. Tyler previously hosted Urban Insight on WURD Radio, Friday nights. The WURD Family is delighted to hear his voice in the morning lineup and we look forward to all that he has in store for Wake Up With WURD.
Each week, Dr. Tyler will speak with local, national, and international guests in an attempt to bring listeners new insight into the stories of the day, including news in the world of sports that impact the African American community.
Past guests from Urban Insight included: Black Panthers founder Bobby Seale, former Olympian John Carlos, the Today Show’s Sheinelle Jones, En Vogue producer Tommy McElroy, social justice advocate Rev. Traci Blackmon, Black Lives Matter activists, public education advocates, living wage organizers, an array of politicians, and many important local voices. WURD is excited to bring the same level of dedication to your morning drive time.
