Hez Gets the Victory
Walker held his peace and let the Lord fight his battles. The same station that allowed the false allegations to go forth is the same station that gives him the show and total autonomy
Two-time Grammy award winner, Hezekiah Walker is taking over NYC airwaves as WLIB/WBLS' newest on-air personality.
Hezekiah was sought out by the FM’s station program director, Vinny Brown and the stations General Manager-Deon Livingston. After much prayer and consideration, Walker accepted the task of tackling the afternoon gospel segment that is completely self programmed and self produced during the high demand afternoon drive time.
When asked what he feels about being literally and physically sandwiched between colleagues Steve Harvey and Wendy Williams, Walker declares “I am right where the Lord would have me to be for such a time as this”. Many remember the public attack by Shock Jock Wendy Williams in the recent past. Walker held his peace and let the Lord fight his battles. The same station that allowed the false allegations to go forth is the same station that gives him total autonomy to pray, inspire, preach, and to reach souls in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and the metropolitan area through gospel music, on the NO.1 radio station in the top city in the WORLD.
