Black Power 96 is radio by and for the black community!

The new community station will deliver a fresh sound featuring locally produced music and neighborhood news, as well as news and information from the Caribbean, Africa and the world.

96.3 LP-FM will stand tall as a non-commercial radio station owned and controlled by the black community of south St. Pete where 70 percent live under the poverty level and where full access to employment, housing, health care and quality education is routinely denied.

Today over 90 percent of the airwaves are controlled by six corporations – Comcast, News Corp, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner and CBS. Clear Channel alone owns more than 1000 radio stations and 80 percent of the music playlists in the U.S. are identical.

Black Power 96 will address these disparities by serving as a hub for the training and employment of broadcast professionals, musicians and engineers.
