Reach Media syndicated personality Russ Parr will conduct a National Moment of Prayer (#NationalMomentOfPrayer) on Friday, March 27 at 7:45am ET amidst the world's pandemic crisis. Parr understands the diversity of religion and the individuality of spirituality and believes that the power of faith and believing in the greater good is what unifies us all.

"We believe in the power of prayer, especially in numbers," said Parr. "On Friday, March 27th at 7:45am EST, my friend, gospel singing sensation and Reach Media syndicated radio host Erica Campbell from 'Get Up Mornings with Erica Campbell' will join us on the Russ Parr Morning Show and lead us in prayer. Please join us wherever you are for our National Moment of Prayer as we pray for peace, healing & gratitude."

Radio One and Reach Media CEO David Kantor said, "We are 100% behind this National Moment of Prayer. We feel now is the time to bring our nation together as we pray together. I will be praying 7:45am."

"While this is truly a time of uncertainty, it's important for us to redirect our fear and turn to our faith. I too will be praying at 7:45am," added Radio One Vice President of Programming Kashon Powell.

Parr added, "Our connection to our listeners is what matters most to us. We take our social responsibility very seriously as the well-being of our collective community is our top priority."
