Donnie Simpson To Host Syndicated Weekend Show

Donnie Simpson
Reach Media has announced that radio icon Donnie Simpson will host The Donnie Simpson Weekend Show, a two-hour program featuring music and interviews from the legendary DJ’s archives, reports Billboard.

Co-hosted by Tony Perkins, The Donnie Simpson Weekend Show launches this weekend (Jan. 9-10) from Reach Media and will play every weekend thereafter on a total of nine affiliate stations including WAMJ-HD2 in Atlanta; WWIN in Baltimore; WOSL in Cincinnati; WZAK in Cleveland; WXMG in Columbus; WPPZ in Philadelphia; WFXC in Raleigh; WKJS in Richmond; and WMMJ in Washington D.C. Each episode will center around a specific music theme.

Over a career spanning 51 years, Simpson has hosted radio programs for stations including WJLB in Detroit and WKYS and WMMJ in Washington, D.C., where he and Perkins currently co-host afternoons. On TV, he also served as a VJ/host for BET’s Video Soul. He was recently inducted into The Radio Hall of Fame Class of 2020.

“People around the country got to watch me on Video Soul for many years, but didn’t get to check me out on my first Love, radio. Only Detroit and DC would suffer that experience,” said Simpson in a statement. “So I’m really excited for the rest of the country to finally hear what I do ON THE RADIO.”
