The Tom Joyner Morning Show is a nationally syndicated program, featuring host Tom Joyner and a team of commentators reporting and discussing the latest news and sports of the day, playing popular R&B songs from the 1970s through the 1990s as well as contemporary R&B hits. It airs on weekdays. The weekend equivalent of the program is the "Right Back At Cha." Southwest Airlines is a prominent sponsor of the radio show, especially Joyner's on-site remotes (called "Sky Shows"), and offers free round-trip airfare to any destination that Southwest flies as a recurring giveaway on the show.

It can be heard on mobile devices and on the Xbox 360 console via iHeartRadio.

History[edit]

In 1994, Joyner was signed by ABC Radio Networks (now Westwood One) to host the show. Joyner transferred syndication rights to Radio One in 2004.

Joyner announced in 2017 that the show would end when it reaches its 25th anniversary in syndication, a milestone that will be reached in 2019.[1]
