Shirley Strawberry is co-host of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show. Heard on nearly 90 radio stations by approximately six million weekly listeners, it’s the number-one syndicated morning show in America.
Steve Harvey and Shirley started their morning show relationship in Los Angeles. From 2000 to 2005, Shirley was the co-host of Harvey’s popular LA-based morning show and it was Harvey himself who dubbed her: “The Best Voice in Radio.”
Their program went on to become the #1 morning show in Los Angeles and one of the most talked about in LA radio for their tireless community efforts – from helping students get desperately needed books, to honoring women and teachers, as well as feeding and helping the underprivileged all over the city.
On May 23, 2005, Harvey, Shirley and the rest of the morning show aired their final broadcast in Los Angeles. It was a sad and historic day in LA that left a lasting impact on the Southern California radio dial.

The top-rated program recently celebrated its 10th anniversary in national syndication.
