The Pulse of Entertainment: ‘The Marvin Sapp Radio Show’ Syndicated on AURN

Eleven-time Grammy Award nominated Marvin Sapp.

*“They asked me to do a show. I did it at home. Recorded it and sent it in,” said 11-time Grammy nominated Marvin Sapp about the launch of his “The Marvin Sapp Radio Show.” “The radio station called and asked about syndication…said. ‘You are the #2 show on the station.’ I said, ‘Who is #1.’ And he said, ‘Steve Harvey’s show.’ Now I am in 40 markets.”

Superadio, and Marvin Sapp, produce “The Marvin Sapp Radio Show” in syndication for American Urban Radio Networks (AURN). AURN is the result of a merger between National Black Network and Unity Broadcasting.

It is the only African-American controlled communications network that targets the African-American communities with its over 200 weekly news, entertainment, sports and information programs and over 300 radio stations.

“The Marvin Sapp Radio Show” went from a local to a major syndication show fast. It is carried by such outlets as St. Louis’ Praise 95.1FM, Virginia’s Praise 104.7FM, New York’s WBLS-FM, Atlanta’s WXJO-FM, Nashville’s WENO-AM and Norfolk’s WBXB-FM.

“It’s a two hour show. I enjoy it…but I’ve never heard the show,” Marvin pointed out. “When it comes on, 10(am) – 12(noon) on Sundays I’m in church.”

Sapp is senior pastor, since 2003, of Lighthouse Full Life Centers in Michigan and Metropolitan Bishop for Global United Fellowship, where he oversees a collection of 150 churches in 19 states that are lead by Bishop Neil C. Ellis. Marvin’s ministry started in music as a member of the Gospel group Commissioned. He went solo in 1995/1996 with the release of “Perfect Peace.” He is currently promoting his album “Close” and its current single “Kind God,” written and produced by Kirk Franklin. Aside from his many Grammy nominations he has four Billboard Music Award nominations and has won two BET Awards, 24 Stellar Awards and a Dove Award. His ministry has garnered him two Honorary Doctorates – in Divinity and Ministry.

“Being busy keeps you out of trouble,” Sapp chuckled when I asked about his many projects. “I just published a book. ‘Suitable,’ on relationships/dating…”

Sapps’ book looks at relationships during the dating stage from a spiritual aspect. He even plans to host relationship workshops to help guide people through finding who is “suitable.”

“The Marvin Sapp Radio Show” (AURN) offers the “Marvin’s Motivational Moment” and the “Ask Marvin” segments for listeners to get consul from the Bishop.

“I’m amazed (at being the #2 show) especially since the members of my church haven’t heard it either – they’re in church. I may beat Steve Harvey,” he laughed. “I appreciate having the opportunity to use the gifts that I have.”
