Premiere Networks has announced that The Steve Harvey Morning Show has reached the 100th affiliate milestone. The top-rated, award-winning program featuring Harvey and his on-air crew, including Shirley Strawberry, J. Anthony Brown, Nephew Tommy, Carla Ferrell and Junior, is the #1 syndicated morning show in America with nearly 7 million weekly listeners.
“This milestone has me beaming,” shared Harvey, who recently renewed his long-term partnership with Premiere Networks’ parent company iHeartMedia. “To be in the 100 club is so gratifying, and to have growth after all this time is a testament to my crew’s hard work and willingness to evolve. We keep looking for ways to improve to give our listeners the best morning we can. Shirley, Carla, Tommy, Kier, and now J. Anthony – thank you for making it happen.”
“This is a major milestone for Steve Harvey and his team, who have successfully entertained and inspired millions of listeners since The Steve Harvey Morning Show was launched nearly 17 years ago,” shared Julie Talbott, Premiere Networks President. “The program’s continued growth and success is a testament to their hard work and dedication, and we look forward to reaching many more milestones together.”
Created by Harvey in September 2000, The Steve Harvey Morning Show joined Premiere Networks national lineup in 2005. Each day on the program, Harvey and his co-hosts entertain listeners with inspirational advice, laughs, celebrity interviews, news, rousing music, and more. For his work on the program, Harvey was honored with the NAB Marconi Award for “Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year” in 2013 and 2015, and he was inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
