The Reach Awards recognizes the accolades and achievements of radio announcers during the week where gospel music fans gather to acknowledge the best and brightest in Gospel music
Reach Out and Touch
In Shanon’s case, it’s about being there. Her reach locally and nationally is visible and undeniably tangible. You’ve seen here across the metroplex hosting and supporting various gospel events and her inviting smile and amiable disposition make all the difference with sometimes exigent listening audience! Her 2013 Stellar Reach Award Listener's Choice Award nomination confirmed her position as a DFW fan favorite!
Expanding her reach
Shanon is the current producer for the award winning Yolanda Adams Morning Show (5a-9a), host of Praise After Dark (1a-5a Tuesday-Saturday),Conversations with Shanon J (Saturday 7pm) and co-hosts a segment on the “On Solid Rock with Doc-C” show on LookUp Radio. Her work on and off the air is impressive and her level of achievement grows with each assignment.
A season of greatness
KHVN is experiencing a season of success and recognition under the guise of Carmina Barnett. Each year during award season, KHVN is a top nominee in gospel music’s highest awards. The station is again a frontrunner for a Stellar Award and is also a nominee for the Rhythm of Gospel Award in the "Gospel Radio Station of the Year" category.
Shanon Jay says of being a radio personality:
It means being able to serve my community. It also means being able to bring hope and happiness to someones life through the words I speak and the music played. It is the chance to provide someone with hope that they are still in God’s favor!
