Edward Long joins Radio One's WPZE-FM (Praise 102.5)/Atlanta. Long, a third generation minister, recognized inspirational speaker and entrepreneur, will host a new show "Lit Nights with Ed and Bre," week nights from 11pm-1am.

"Lit Nights is an outlet to provide yet another fresh avenue in the inspirational format", said Program Director and Format Captain Derek Harper. "We are excited to officially welcome ED Long to the Praise family. His tireless work in the community and his commitment to the youth make him a valued addition to Praise 102.5 and more importantly, to the Radio One Atlanta Team.

Long said, "Since a college intern under Cory 'Coco Brother' Condrey, it has been a part of my dream to be a part of Radio One. As our founder, Cathy Hughes, was a trailblazer founding the largest African-American owned broadcast communications company in the world, it feels like a natural progression for Derek Harper, Erwin Hill and Tim Davies to be so supportive of the Urban Inspiration format. My co-host, Bre, DJ Dex and I look forward to not only bringing inspiration in Jesus name but also turning your late nights into a Lituation."

"Atlanta is not only home for inspiring the world through our national shows such as the Willie Moore Jr. Show, The Nightly Spirit with Darlene McCoy and The Praise Mixdown," added Regional VP and General Manager Tim Davies. "It is also home of most important, if not the most important stations in the country, Praise 102.5. The addition of Ed Long and the "Lit Nights with Ed and Bre" Show, gives our audience and new artists a voice."
