Based in Houston, Texas where Adams lives, “The Yolanda Adams Morning Show” launched in 2007 and was the first daily Gospel show to be nationally syndicated. During its initial years, Adams worked alongside radio veteran Larry Jones, who left the show in 2010.
At the time of cancelation, the “Open My Heart” singer’s radio show was heard on 38 stations in cities like New York City, Dallas, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Charlotte and Washington, DC, among others.
