Starting from July 31, Whoopi Goldberg will host a live, syndicated program, "Wake Up With Whoopi," joining the growing ranks of radio voices. It's a live weekday program aimed at women, to air on mostly adult contemporary stations nationwide.
"I'm going to talk to people. People are going to talk to me. I'm going to be singing and dancing in my chair. I'm going to wake people up," Goldberg said while adding "I want to have a good time in the morning and I want everyone who wakes up with me to have a good time."
The show will air weekday mornings from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m., said John Hogan, president and CEO of Clear Channel Radio. Besides taking calls and doing comedy bits, Goldberg said she'll be playing music, adding she hopes she'll be allowed to select some of her own.
