Delilah Rene is the queen of American radio. People listened to her show for her heartfelt wisdom to every type of heartache a man can imagine. She has healed a lot of women emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, even if she was a mess.
People listened to her because they can feel her sincerity, and they know she has flaws for she’s human. What made Delilah attractive to people is because she’s a survivor. She’s been through a lot, such as failed marriages, deaths of children, and health issues like alcoholism and eating disorder.
Soon after the failure of her first marriage, her sister-in-law and brother died in a plane crash, and it made her cry to God. She prayed, “God, if you’re real, I need to know.”
When she woke up the next day, there’s a New Testament book on her car’s windshield, and there’s a handwritten note, “Jesus Loves You.” It delighted Delilah, so she asked her neighbor to pray with her in the church. She expressed, “And that was the day I gave my heart to God.”
The life experiences of Delilah made her answer questions from her listeners intelligently, sincerely, and heartfelt, and of course, her gorgeous voice calms the soul. The Oprah of radio has 8.8 million listeners, and she’s American radio’s most listened woman. Her show has secular and Christian versions, so she draws a lot of interest.
Since 1996, Delilah’s show is nationally syndicated, and it’s highly successful. She’s been branded as Queen of the Sappy Love Song due to her heartfelt counseling on air. Delilah’s romance radio is both therapy and counseling sessions. She is worth $4 million.
Delilah is a strong and responsible mom of 14 kids, where 10 of them are adopted. She has walked the altar four times, but she manages to joke about her divorces on her radio show. Currently, she’s married to Paul Warner, a long-time partner.
She spoke to People magazine regarding her failed marriages and death in the family, “There is a verse that says, ‘Every one of our days is numbered before a single one comes to pass.’ That one verse has saved my sanity because all of my son’s days were numbered. God knew when they were going to leave this earth before they came to this earth and knowing that changes everything. Because if I didn’t believe that, then I would do the what-ifs. What if I had done this differently? What if I had done that differently?”
