"Philly's Favor 100.7," a new Gospel & Inspirational outlet, will launch on W264BH and WJBR-FM-HD3/Philadelphia on June 8. It will also be available to stream online and on the app. The brain child of JAMJACKJR Enterprises President/CEO Jonathan A. Mason Sr., the station will feature Inspirational music and Gospel hits highlighting artists such as Marvin Sapp, Kirk Franklin, Kanye West, Fred Hammond, Travis Greene, Kierra Sheard and Anthony Brown.

Gospel Music Legend and TV host Bobby Jones will start the morning off from 5-6am, followed by "The Dee Lee Show" from 6-9am and "The Bishop Mary Show" featuring Philadelphia's own Archbishop Mary Floyd Palmer from 10am-3pm. Grammy award winner Bishop Hezekiah Walker rounds out the day from 3-7pm.

Aligning with the company's commitment to serve the community, Philly's Favor will launch the station with a local food giveaway, feeding 500 families in the Philadelphia area. The food distribution will be an ongoing station initiative in order to combat the food shortage as a result of the pandemic.

The station is programmed by veteran radio executive Ken Johnson who most recently served as the Vice President of Urban Programming for Cumulus Media.

"I truly believe in the JAMJACKJR Enterprises' mission to uplift and serve the community," said Program Director Ken Johnson. "Given the current political and social climate I couldn't think of a better time to launch this station."

"2nd Chronicles 7:14 tells us that if we learn to seek God's face and turn from our wicked ways, He will heal our land. With a pandemic gripping the nation, unemployment at depression level highs and social unrest causing violence in cities large and small, I think we can all agree that our land is in need of healing," added Mason. "It is with that thought in mind that we have decided to launch Philly's Favor 100.7 FM."

He added, "We are committed to spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ far and wide. Through our terrestrial signal, our App and stream, we will super-serve Philadelphia while providing great gospel content across the world. Our goal is to tithe back to our community in a substantive way. That is why we are launching our station with a food giveaway to 500 Philadelphia families. We invite you to join us on this journey."
