One of the New York City area’s most popular radio personalities Liz Black has earned her second Stellar Award nomination as Radio Personality of the Year (She was first nominated in 2012).
The vivacious emcee hosts weekly gospel shows on The Big Apple’s iconic R&B powerhouse 107.5 WBLS and its 24-hour gospel station, 1190 AM WLIB. She also hosts the nationally syndicated program, “Inspirations with Liz Black,” that airs Sunday afternoons between 2-4 p.m. EST on the Rejoice Musical Soulfood Network.
“It’s such an honor to be nominated and recognized by the industry because I really love what I do and it’s a ministry for me,” says Black who began her radio career as an announcer on Tri-State Christian radio stations such as WWDJ, WMCA and WFDU in the late 1990s. She moved to WLIB in 2007 where, in addition to hosting her own show, she’s frequently filled-in for Bishop Hezekiah Walker’s daily “Afternoon Praise” radio program.
In 2010, she joined WBLS where she hosts “Sunday Praise.” She still finds time to host “Midday Café” on k107 FM Jamz in Toronto, Canada. Black is also the founder of a monthly Gospel Variety Show/Open Mic program at various locations throughout the New York Tri-State area.
“Liz is a Blessing to her community and beyond,” says WBLS/WLIB General Manager Skip Dillard. “You can’t out-hustle her! She’s always there when you need her and spreading the Word of God is her mission! I Pray she WINS!”
“Liz Black is one of the most talented air personalities in the business,” says Mike Chandler, President of Rejoice Radio Networks/Musical Soulfood. “We are honored to have Liz on our team. She brings a level of excellence that enhances our offerings to radio stations across the country.”
