Radio One's WOL-AM/Washington, DC, taps veteran media personality Madelyne Woods to host the all new morning show beginning Monday, January 6. She assumes the morning slot that was vacated by Tom Joyner when he retired after 25 years from his syndicated show. A personable journalist, Woods' interviews and reports have appeared on radio and TV stations around the nation, such as ABC, NBC, BET, Fox Entertainment and "The Tom Joyner Morning Show."

"I'm very excited to get back to talk radio," said Woods. "To have the opportunity to do it on WOL, the station where Ms. Cathy Hughes blazed a trail for black women and urban radio as a whole, is a dream come true. I want the show to be quick, smart, and witty. I want the DMV to wake up, feel good, and talk. We don't talk to each other enough anymore, and it's important that we focus on what's real about ourselves and our community. We're going to laugh, love and learn together, and be unapologetically black and proud with it."

"Madelyne is an iconic personality with a career that spans over two decades and having her on a legendary station such as WOL is a perfect match," added Radio One VP/Programming Kashon Powell.

WOL-AM Program Director Ron Thompson added, "We're excited about the Morning Goods with Madelyne Woods. We're live; local and all about DC."
