I don't like the new show. She talks to much I liked it best when Bro. Larry was the host. It seemed more genuine. I love Yolanda's music but I think she is a terrible radio talk show host.
She most definitely is not a radio hostess, but I give her credit for trying.

I'm really sorry we have people cursing on Christian sites. I'm sad that people are so judgemental but I also understand that you can please some of the people some of the time but you will never please all of the people all of the time. I think it's just nice to have another outlet and forum for a different type of Christian and those who may not be a Christian yet. It's not all about our personal taste but another way of going into the highways & byways.God bless Yolanda and her love of God and his people. Amen!

Thank you for your radio program. I live in South Jersey and can only receive it online by way of 103.9 FM in Philadelphia. Your radio ministry is a blessing.

Yolanda talks too much. Houston needed a Gospel radio station, which was 24/7. I enjoyed the show when it was Bro. Larry Jones. If Yolanda could start talking abount 8:am central time - it would be appreciated.

I'm not a fan of the Yolanda Adams morning show AT ALL. It is ok not to like it too. It doesn't mean I don't like her as an artist...it just means she isn't a good radio host. Being able to talk doesn't necessarily qualify you to be a morning talk show host. I miss my MELISSA WADE in the water! Having a host (like Melissa) who is from my area of Raleigh NC and who actually does this for a living:-) makes it a more personal for me as I'm listening on the way to work. We had really great programs in the morning that aren't there anymore. I literally turn the radio off now because its just not inspirational to listen to Yolanda laugh all the time in the mic and tell me what time it is every 5 minutes. Yolanda. Again this takes nothing from Yolanda Adams as an artist....but she should retire the mic.

Yolanda I love the morning show. It is a great inspiration to me when traveling in morning rush hour traffic. Not only do I hear the word on TV in the morning, but also from you on radio. I know there is one Spirit because you are right on course with the prophets on TV. May God continue to bless you and enlarge your coasts. And you continue to walk in what God has given you and giving Him all the glory and honor. We love you

I enjoy the music that is played on the station, but I dont feel Yolanda Adams is keeping it real. She is a little to ghetto for me. I love Bro Larry Jones, he sounds sincere.

I am pleased to be able to listen to Yolanda in the morning and her hosts, but there is one thing that is missing, the "Prince is missing", Prince DaJour. Yolanda and hosts and Prince DaJour on 105.1 New Priase, the show would be revolutionary for these last days. New Praise means New Vision, Talk Show, means that you have the right people in the right place at the right time, Yolanda do what God leads you to do with strength and power, and get the "Prince" on the air with you guys.
God Bless You!!

Yoland I can't begin to express what a "God Sent" your radio station has been for me. Wholesome inpirational music for my "SOUL" and your power points and monthly bible book is excellent food again for my "SOUl". Notice how many times feeding our "soul" comes up God's word says "Man must not live on bread alone. But on every utterance coming from the Lord!" So any child of God can see how important that must truly be in our journey through this life. Love you, God Bless you, and keeping "sowing those seeds" I so vitally need! SMILE!

With joy I say hi Yolanda! Mrs. Adams.
I have been worshiping with you through your music for at least 8 years now and I am delighted to have the opportunity to be worshiping with you through the word that you bring forth every mooring. I proudly share with you that it was you and Kirk Franklin who presented the mustard seed faith and I thank you both and ask that you please, please keep up the awesome work that GOD continues to show you. About 8 years ago there was a song that you singed that helped me through my 1st year of recovery and for almost a year I have been searching for it. The only lyric that I can remember is that you ask GOD to erase you iniquity. Can you email it to me at [email protected] if you or any one who may have an idea of which song I am speaking about? Thanking GOD for us all and the blessing and lessen in life may GOD continue to show up. Peace and blessing to u and your family
p.s I was hurt and disappointed when i read over some negative comments but then i said hey everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and all opinions are not true facts. I also remembered how negative criticism has enhanced many areas of my life.

I agree. I've said that I would give her show a chance, but after listening to it just once, I just couldn't take it.

I love the morning show. It is a welcome change from the norm. Christians should be more encouraging. The Yolanda Adam's Morning Show offers a Christ focus format. Christians should remember that "God can use whomever He wants to do what ever He needs". For those offering such unconstructive criticism, please meditate on the preceding.

I was looking for gosel inspirational music in the morning, because to Praise GOD with music is an ultimate celebration! Yolanda Adams is real! I think the program would be more REAL and inpiring if they asked the program director "PLEASE add some new gospel music to the schedule and stop some of those repeated commercials",(although we understand that is how the air time gets paid!!!), but... if trust is place truly in the Lord, you'll still be standing when all is said and done, it is for the Glory of GOD, and a way to minister to others to get us through the difficult times! I know, I used to go to work gloomy, started listening to the PRAISE station 104.1 FM, came to work one morning and a sister said to me "Girl, you are just glowing & smiling, what's up?" I told her PRAISE is what's going on!! You'll enjoy while you can there are many enemies of GOD, who don't want to see or hear of the successes and victories of the Lord!! Truly, Christians must stop pulling other Christians down!! To GOD BE THE GLORY!!

Oh my goodness. Why is it that people are using words like "judging" or "pulling other Christians down" when they say they don't like Yolanda as a radio host. It takes nothing away from her singing or the daily word. People are simply saying that she isn't a great host. People also have to realize that some states already had FM Christian stations and were more than happy with the current morning show. We have had an FM station in our area for years and YES I prefer our old morning show and NO that is not judging or being negative. I'm stating an opinion. God will always get the glory whether I like to listen to the YAMS or not. Those who like it GREAT, those who don't GREAT. People are taking the comments personally like Yolanda is there best friend or something. People are getting a little to deep with the comments. Calm down my Christian brothers and sisters!

I don,t like the Yolanda Adams morning show at all. I'm not fond of the way they make fun at people's hair and clothes. Christ never did that. They are negative and uninspirational. It's about uplifting and encouraging people not talking and gossiping about the way people look.Maybe they are doing the best they can and tearing thrm down do not help. Praise the Lord or Pray for some one with the breath you use to talk about folks.

I love Yolanda Adams' new morning show, but she needs to drop Bro Larry. He keeps jumping from station to station, attempting to change to whatever works at the time. When he comes on to talk (which he does constantly) I change the station. He's irritating!
