Whoopi Coming To Radio!
Whoopi has signed with powerhouse Clear Channel to launch a morning radio show called "Wake Up With Whoopi" that will air across the country from 5 am to 9 am. Don't look for raunchiness or shock jock tactics or probably even a lot of politics. Whoopi will be airing on Adult Contemporary radio stations (think stations that play a lot of Elton John, Celine Dion and John Mayer et al) and she's aiming for a family audience. Morning radio does a terrible job of reaching women (you think most women want to listen to Opie & Anthony or Howard Stern?) and Whoopi could do a great job reaching them. She also wants to appeal to families and kids. Look for the show -- which will originate out of NYC -- to debut July 31.
