Delilah, the most-listened-to-woman on radio in the U.S., embraced the medium when she was a middle-schooler in Reedsport, Oregon, reporting school news and sports on KDUN-AM, a small station in her hometown.
Delilah’s soothing voice, open heart and love of music have expanded her audience from the folks in Reedsport to more than eight million weekly listeners on more than 200 radio stations in the U.S. and Canada.
Delilah, who celebrated the 25-year anniversary of her nighttime radio program in 2011, was honored at the Alliance of Women in Media’s 37th Annual Gracie Awards Gala where she took home the trophy for “Outstanding Host - Entertainment/Information.”
Delilah says her show is a “safety zone where listeners take off their armor, slip into a ‘Mr. Rogers’ cardigan, sit around the electronic hearth and share their secrets.” Often referred to as the “Oprah of Radio,” Delilah is also the author of three books, including Arms Full of Love, which was released Sept. 25. Published by Harlequin Books, it features a poignant and emotional collection of heartfelt listener stories and Delilah’s own tales that demonstrate the importance of family.
Delilah will appear Saturday, from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the Demonstration Stage (Booth #2821).
Saturday at 1 p.m. she will sign autographs at the Clear Channel Booth (#1713).
