When Delores Poindexter started her radio career in 1970, she was one of only a few women on the air in Indianapolis at the time. She started as a DJ on Sunday mornings on WTLC and was entertained with her personality and knowledge of the community and gospel music. When the legendary Rev. Mozel Sanders passed away in 1988, Poindexter took over WTLC’s weekday early morning gospel music program that became a top-ranked program in the market. She was the first African American woman licensed Disc Jockey to have a national radio program on WTLC Radio and the first African American woman to have a number one rated show for 15 years. She also was the first woman to host her radio show inside the prisons and jails throughout the city and state. Poindexter was a pioneer in gospel music and a world-renowned singer, singing with the greats of gospel music.
