*Comedian and radio personality J. Anthony Brown has joined Sheryl Underwood’s radio program, and he’s expected to bring all the hilarious content that he owned and produced during his 20 year stint on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.
Sheryl Underwood Radio airs on 70 radio affiliates across the country, in the Virgin Islands and online, with a reach of over 5 million listeners daily.
“I am happy my Brother of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, J. Anthony Brown, is coming to Sheryl Underwood Radio. We are going to crush it!” Underwood says, “We are glad that we are building a brand that talents, such as J. Anthony Brown, are proud to be a part of.”

According to J. Anthony Brown, “Sheryl has the right to play all the murderous hits. We have released the hounds! Sheryl Underwood Radio will air all of the shows from last year, all of our hits; AND new original songs are coming soon! The hounds have been released!”
Sheryl Underwood Radio began in 2013 with only one affiliate station in Toledo, Ohio. Today, the affiliate roster has expanded to 70 affiliate stations with 65 stations added in the last year alone.
“This type of growth is not the norm in our industry,” says Rob Wilkins, Senior VP of Affiliate Relations & Promotions for SUR. He adds, “J. Anthony Brown is truly comedy royalty. The 70 affiliates of Sheryl Underwood Radio are in for a treat from this amazing comedian!” SUR Executive Producer Vic Frost adds, “We are extremely excited to add such an icon to our programming. For our listeners to hear J. Anthony Brown’s hits, will be an added humorous delight. J. has been delivering hits for over 20 years, and now he can be heard on Sheryl Underwood Radio!”
Meanwhile, it was previously reported that Tom Joyner’s morning show is replacing J. Anthony Brown with a rotating cast of five well-known entertainers: Bill Bellamy, Sherri Shepherd, Arsenio Hall, Kym Whitley and Lavell Crawford. Each will fill in one day a week.
Brown worked with Joyner for two decades, and he left the show after his efforts to put together a weekend solo show with Joyner’s Reach Media fell through.
