Changes coming to 90.9 KTSU mornings

90.9 KTSU Houston

The "Yolanda Adams Morning Show" with Yolanda Adams and Marcus D. Wiley, is no longer in the 5am to 9am programming slot on 90.9 KTSU The Choice. 

The Texas Southern University radio station will soon debut "Morning Vibes with Chilly Bill Smith & Friends" from 6am to 9am Monday through Friday.

The new Chilly Bill Smith morning show was supposed to debut Monday morning this week on KTSU, but thanks to our arctic blast, the station's Facebook page says the show is expected to officially start Thursday, February 19, 2021.

Smith, who also attended TSU, previously worked for Majic 102.1 from 1986 to 2012 according to his LinkedIn. He joined KTSU in 2018 to host Mid-Day Grooves which aired Saturday’s from 10am to 2pm.

“The Yolanda Adams Morning Show" started airing on KTSU in September 2019. Both Adams and Wiley are TSU alumni.

Adam's syndicated morning show launched in March 2007 and was the first daily gospel show to be nationally syndicated, reaching 38 stations across the United States. The show originated from Radio One Houston's Praise 92.1 KROI and then later a Majic 102 HD sub-channel.

The show's syndication was cancelled in 2016, replaced with "Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell." From there, Adams and Wiley moved the show to Amazing 102.5 Houston. Then it was moved to KTSU.

The Yolanda Adams Morning Show is now being heard on Philly’s Favor 100.7 FM W264BH-FM & 99.5 WJBR-HD3 in Philadelphia as of February 8, 2021.

“Philly has been so loyal and so good to us, even when we went digital," Adams told the The Philadelphia Tribune. "We had lots of Philly numbers. No matter where we broadcasted from, we’ve never changed the format. We are still high energy, we’re still based on faith, family, friends and fun. Lots of fun. It’s very informative because sometimes you know in the morning, people have either slept through the news or didn’t get the right type of slant on the news, catered to them.”
