Andrea Lawful-Sanders, a prominent host on WURD radio, has resigned from the Philadelphia-based station following the revelation that her post-debate interview with President Joe Biden included questions pre-selected by Biden’s campaign team. 

Lawful-Sanders Resigns from WURD

Sara Lomax, president and CEO of WURD, announced the resignation in a statement posted on Sunday on the station’s website.

“The interview featured pre-determined questions provided by the White House, which violates our practice of remaining an independent media outlet accountable to our listeners. As a result, Ms. Lawful-Sanders and WURD Radio have mutually agreed to part ways, effective immediately,” Lomax stated.

WURD is Pennsylvania’s only Black-owned talk radio station, known for its independent and trustworthy voice for Black Philadelphians.

 Lomax emphasized that using pre-determined questions jeopardizes that trust and is not a practice that WURD Radio engages in or endorses. “WURD Radio is not a mouthpiece for the Biden or any other Administration,” she added.
