Picking up "The Tom Joyner Morning Show" (TJMS) from Clear Channel urban AC WVAZ (V103)/Chicago in April has paid off for Crawford urban AC WSRB (Soul 106.3) if the first full week of ratings is an indication. The Reach Media-syndicated program has grown by 300%, from 0.8 to a 2.4 share, in the 25-54-year-old target demo.
The Chicago edition of Joyner's show is more customized because of his extensive history in the market, which included 13 years on V103. His former station dropped the TJMS in March and began airing "The Steve Harvey Morning Show."
