Solomon Jones returns to WURD Radio and delivers commentary on 100.3 WRNB and Classix 107.9

Solomon Jones is on the move again.

This time it’s back to the airwaves of WURD 96.1 FM, Pennsylvania’s only black owned talk-radio station, where the Inquirer and Daily News columnist previously worked as a host from 2014 to 2017.

Starting May 6, Jones will host the Wake Up With WURD morning show, replacing current host, Aaron Smith, who will continue on with WURD by hosting the new WURD Show On the Go, also launching on May 6.

“Having both Solomon Jones and Dr. Aaron Smith on the WURD team will allow us to deepen our journalistic coverage and community engagement in ways that will be transformative for the station and the community,” Sara Lomax-Reese, WURD President and CEO, said a statement.

Jones said that he will maintain two roles with Radio One: Your Voice will continue to air a Saturday edition at 9 a.m. on Classix 107.9 FM and he will periodically offer social and political commentary on WRNB 100.3 FM.
