brother marlon on air
Brother Marlon has been in radio for over 20 years beginning in 1992 on WXJX, the college radio station for Washington & Jefferson College. He interned at WAMO in 1994, and his career launched from there. Known then as Sean Richards he hosted a variety of shows including: The Breakfast Jam, The Quiet Storm, and Club 106. During his 20+ years the voice has been the same but the mission has changed as the Lord got a hold of Brother Marlon's life in 1997; thus beginning his radio ministry.
The radio ministry began as Marlon worked overnights at WORD-FM, and did afternoons at WGBN. He worked there for five years as program/production director, and eventually morning show host. It was here were Marlon learned to merge the radio expertise he acquired over the years along with his personal ministry of inspiring listeners through music and the Word of God; making them laugh with his sense of humor and his own unique laugh, and encouraging his listeners to give praises to God.
He was called into full time ministry at his local church in 2005 and left radio for a short time. But in 2006 he received the call to return to WAMO to host their gospel program on Sundays, and be the program director at WPGR. Marlon worked there until the stations were sold in 2009. During this time he developed a tremendous following becoming the new voice of gospel in the Pittsburgh region, and continues to be sought after as a MC and speaker at various events.
After the sale of WAMO AM/FM, and WPGR in 2009 Brother Marlon continued working in ministry and worked on a podcast called Total Access. Also during this time he began working with his mentor Ron Atkins on an internet radio station called The Power. In 2010 he returned to WORD-FM to host a new gospel program called The Power of Gospel. And continued there until the following year in 2011 when he received a call from another mentor Mike Gamble to come back to the Sheridan family to produce their radio programs (KD Bowe Morning Show/Rick Joyner Experience, Gospel Express with Morgan Dukes, Ace Alexander and the Praise Party, and Evening Inspirations with Jackie Campbell). Brother Marlon worked faithfully to provide creative content and production to the network until he received a promotion to afternoon host and music/production director of the network.
Brother Marlon once again became the voice of inspiration in Pittsburgh on the FM dial when WAMO returned to the region in 2012, he continues to provide music and inspiration each Sunday morning to this day.
