BLACK CONSERVATIVE TALK RADIO HOST ADDED TO BLACK RADIO STATION WBOK 1230 AM IN NEW ORLEANS
ST. LOUIS, MO Jun 26 – Kevin Jackson’s Conservative talk radio show has replaced former CNN correspondent Roland Martin at WBOK 1230 AM in New Orleans, as Martin’s program will move to a later time slot. Jackson’s “The Black Sphere radio show” will follow Al Sharpton’s radio program.
According to Melissa La Boy, COO of The Black Sphere, LLC:
“We were pleasantly surprised that a black urban radio station requested Kevin’s show. It speaks to Kevin’s ability to appeal outside the echo chamber of Conservative talk radio.”
WBOK 1230 AM will air Kevin Jackson’s show after Al Sharpton’s syndicated program, to which Jackson commented,
“I’m happy to follow Al Sharpton, because there couldn’t be a bigger difference in thought. I believe black stations need to allow their listeners varying points of view, and I’m excited about the opportunity to have a predominantly black audience compare my viewpoint to Sharpton and Martin.”
WBOK (1230 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a Christian radio format. Licensed to New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, the station serves the New Orleans area. The station is owned by Bakewell Media of Louisiana, LLC. Its current slogan is “Real Talk for Real Times”.
The station was purchased by Danny Bakewell on behalf of The Bakewell Family in April 2007.
