Minister Melvin Hood
Sundays 7:30am - 12pm
Minister Melvin L. Hood is a native of Chicago, Illinois. Equipped with God-given gifts and a special anointing. He has encouraged the hearts of many and compelled the lost to Jesus. As a young boy, Melvin had a calling to the ministry that started as a musician playing drums back in Chicago. His interest grew to include sound technology, and soon expanded to communication, production, and promotion.
After showing an interest in radio Rev. Johnny Jackson gave Minister Hood his first break on WAWA. This opened the door for other opportunities: he worked with Eugene Matthews on WNOV and brokeraged time on WYLO for his first gospel radio production "Inspirations". Also well known for Gospel Skating, he later went on to produce and promote various national artists like Rev. Timothy Wright and Bebe & Cece Winans in concert.
The Lord directed Minister Hood to radio station WMCS. With a proposal in his hand, a concept and the love of the lord in his heart, Melvin Hood pursued his dream to bring to Milwaukee -- "Music With A Message": thus the birth of Love & Devotion.
Through the years as the format has changed, God has continued to manifest Himself through this ministry. Currently Melvin continues to build his radio ministry through the venue of V100 - 100.7 FM. Every Sunday from 7:30 AM - Noon, thousands of listeners tune in, here they have their spirits uplifted, their souls renewed, and their hurts healed. As a result Love & Devotion has become the highest rated Gospel program in the city of Milwaukee.
Melvin's personal testimony of spreading music that makes a statement: and finding a personal relationship with Jesus Christ serves as a catalyst to change the lives of many by spreading the good news of the Gospel.
As God so directs, Melvin will continue to minister through song, pumping gospel music and uplifting spirits everywhere.
