Bountiful Blessings Broadcasting brings inspiration to Yazoo City with new radio station
At an early age he learned from his father, Joseph Thomas, Sr. the importance of giving back to the community and doing his part to promote the good in the city and Yazoo County. Joseph, Jr. serves on the Board of Directors for Boys and Girls Club in Yazoo City and with his father on the Board of Directions of the Yazoo County Layman’s Assoc.
This year the two looked for another way that they could not just give back to the city but set an example for others as well. They formed Bountiful Blessings Broadcasting and in October 2014 they launched Max 94.1 FM WYAD. Located in Yazoo City, the station not only reaches the city’s 28k potential listeners but the Delta and surrounding areas.
“When I was younger we had a black station in the area,” Joe, Jr. says “It went out of business in the late 80s. My dad and I saw there was a need and decided to fill that void.”
The two didn’t want to fill the airwaves with just anything. They wanted to provide quality content that listeners would not only enjoy but find inspiring. Other than music 94.1 FM will features shows that deal with a variety of topics like health issues, finances and things that matter to the local community. Joseph, Jr. has also brought in media personality, author and Mississippi native Cyrus Webb’s award-winning show Conversations LIVE as one of the anchor programs. Beginning Mon. Jan. 5th Webb will host an hour of celebrity interviews and current events from 7-8p.m. Central. Joseph, Jr. will also host his own show dealing with important issues and topics that will allow listeners to sound off by calling in.
In addition to quality programming Bountiful Blessings will open up the doors to the radio station to introduce and train young kids in the broadcasting industry. “It’s important for us to continue to give back,” says Joseph, Jr. “That is the way we continue to build and empower our communities.”
