Delilah, the syndicated radio host who dominates the evening hours on the airwaves, embraced radio when she was a middle-schooler in Reedsport, Oregon, reporting school news and sports on KDUN, 1470-AM, a small station in her hometown. Today, her soothing voice, open heart and love of music has expanded her audience from the folks in Reedsport to eight million people in more than 200 communities throughout the country including here at 94.5 KBAY!

Delilah airs from 7PM to midnight in each market. Her distinctive blend of story-telling, sympathetic listening and encouragement - all scored with adult contemporary soft rock - makes her number one among women 18-49/25-54 in Seattle, Tampa, Minneapolis, Orlando, Pittsburgh, Las Vegas, Nashville, and Hartford.

Delilah says that 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."

She adds that her audience is "just like me and the two women working on the show, who were once listeners. We are single parents who work hard to strike a balance between family and work life. We also enjoy our friendships and remember to laugh as much as possible."

Delilah is a single mother of seven children, four of whom she adopted. Because of her experience with the foster care system, she has established a foundation called PointHope which focuses on facilitating adoptions of special needs kids and improving the lives of those closer to home in her Seattle neighborhood. A committed Christian, she is dedicated to helping others and sharing her good fortune widely. Recently, she and her foundation began working with World Vision International to provide fresh water sources, formula for undernourished infants and hope to a refugee camp in Ghana.

In addition to a passion for children and radio, Delilah is devoted to music because "it touches the heart the way nothing else can." Her father had a Country-Western band, and her brother played in a Jazz band. Though she writes lyrics, she cannot sing. Delilah says, "I always wanted to be a performer, but I can't sing, dance or act. Luckily, I found I could talk!" Delilah, like all blue-ribbon radio hosts, loves her work "because it has allowed me to bring together a distinct community of people who reach out to help one another. We don't try to fix people. We listen. We sympathize. We empathize. If the show has a message it's listen to your own gut. Trust your own intuition. Go where it leads. Don't give up." Daily broadcasts, caring for her children, running a foundation, writing books, traveling and public speaking add up to a very busy life for Delilah. And she wouldn't have it any other way.
