From WCLK General Manager Wendy Williams--Yolanda Reynolds always loved working with WCLK and we loved working with her. She was the first to launch our popular radio talk show Atlanta Profiles with leading dignitaries and business leaders. She knew so many people. Most know her from her work with the Who’s Who Publishing Company. But most of all Yolanda Reynolds was best known for her warmth and graciousness. She is a truly beautiful spirit that is now soaring.
