Radiofacts: Originally posted Jan 14, 2017 – While Steve Harvey and D.L. Hughley may have worked together as Kings of Comedy, they have also both ended up with nationally syndicated radio shows but their paths are very different. Some people may not realize that DL got his start at KJLH in Los Angeles in the early 90s and he's not only politically savvy he's an intellectual who was always deserving a greater platform than one radio station.
I have to commend DL on using radio for more than comedy but using it as an additional much-needed platform as an advocate for the black community. DL takes urban radio back to the black radio days when the airwaves were the saving grace and the alarm clock for the black community but he has managed to update the concept by still making it entertaining.
Harvey has to also be commended for his outreach and advocacy for young black men at risk with his mentoring programs.
Here, Hughley addresses the visit Harvey recently made to Donald Trump.
