About WBOK 1230am
WBOK 1230am is one of the oldest and longest-running black-owned radio stations in the country. Throughout its history, it has utilized many formats, including R&B, Gospel, and TOP 40. However, following the disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the need for timely unfiltered information to flow to the African American community of greater New Orleans, WBOK switched its format to "News and Talk" to serve the community.
Today under Equity Media, WBOK will continue to be a news, talk, sports, and culture format offering listeners timely news, current events, cultural happenings sports updates, and much more. In addition to engaging with the audience over the airwaves, WBOK is an active part of the community hosting or participating in many events and public gatherings throughout Greater New Orleans.
