“I want to thank Mark Kelly Tyler and Denise Clay for their time as the hosts of the Wake Up With WURD show,” said President and CEO of WURD Radio Sara Lomax-Reese,. “We are particularly grateful to Mark Tyler for connecting us with P.O.W.E.R. (Philadelphians Organized to Witness, Empower and Rebuild) and for their ongoing support of the station’s mission. We wish Mark and Denise all the best with their future endeavors.”

Celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2018, WURD Radio is excited about the year ahead.
