Tom Joyner

Founder of the Tom Joyner Foundation and and host of the nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show, Tom Joyner Sr. is considered one of the most influential, inspirational and dynamic personalities in the country. From small, southern Tuskegee, Ala., this 1999 Radio Hall of Fame inductee has ignited a sense of pride in the hearts of 7 million listeners in more than 120 radio markets, instilling in us the significance of unity and giving back to one's community. A graduate of Tuskegee University, Joyner began his broadcasting career in Montgomery, Ala., at WRMA-AM immediately after graduation. With a B.S. in sociology in hand, he ventured into several other markets, including WLOK-AM in Memphis; KWK-AM in St. Louis; KKDA-FM in Dallas; and four different stations in Chicago. Finally, in the mid-1980s, Joyner made his claim to fame when he accepted simultaneous positions as "morning drive man" at Dallas's KKDA and "afternoon drive man" at Chicago's WGCI. Flying everyday between the two cities to work eventually earned him national recognition, the name "Fly Jock," 7 million frequent flyer miles, syndication and undoubtedly the largest audience of any urban radio program. Joyner's success as a radio personality and philanthropist has earned him several awards and honors, including four 'Billboard' magazine Best Urban Contemporary Air Personality awards and 'Impact' magazine's Joe Loris Award for Excellence in Broadcasting. Joyner was named 'Impact''s Best DJ of the Year so many times that this honor has been renamed the Tom Joyner Award. Other notable honors include the congressional Black Caucus' Mickey Leland Humanitarian Award, 100 Black Men's Man of the Year Award, the NAACP's President's Award and the Harold Washington Award for his tireless efforts in the Census 2002 campaign. This national pacesetter resides in Dallas with his wife, fitness guru Donna Richardson, who is the fitness expert for NBC's 'Later Today' and 'Weekend Today' shows. Joyner has two sons, Thomas Jr., who is the chief executive officer of the Tom Joyner Foundation, and Oscar, who is the vice-chair for Joyner's
