Want to learn about radio programming operations, with hands-on training and experience?

Black Power 96 FM radio is seeking volunteers to assist our Station Manager, Eddie Maultsby, aka "the world’s best blind DJ".

WBPU FM radio is a project of the African People’s Education and Defense Fund, "the baddest nonprofit on the planet".

Our mission is to defend the human and civil rights of the African community through our educational and cultural programming, to provide professional radio broadcasting training, and to promote economic development and self-reliance in the African community.

Volunteers can come into the station in St. Petersburg, Florida, or work from home, assuming you have your own computer and internet access to carry out this work.

Programming Assistants may engage in a variety of projects such as:

  • Assist Mr. Maultsby in organizing monthly Programmers Meetings. Send out email invitations and follow up with phone calls to make sure that all of the volunteer DJs are aware and planning to attend the meetings. Take minutes at the meetings and follow-up on decisions made in the meetings.
  • Assist Mr. Maultsby in managing the "Local Going Global" contest, where local artists gain international exposure. Tasks include ensuring that music submissions are received and reviewed by Mr. Maultsby, checking for results of the weekly contest and ensuring that the winning artists get put into heavy airplay rotation and get the recognition promised in the contest.
  • Assist Mr. Maultsby in reviewing new show applications. Follow-up with applicants and, if approved, guide them through the onboarding and training process.

Mission Statement

Defend the human and civil rights of the African community and address the grave disparities in education, health and economic development.

Description

WBPU Black Power 96.3 FM is radio by and for the black community!

The new community station located in St. Petersburg, FL is a project of the non-profit African People’s Education and Defense Fund! We 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 FM stands 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 96.3 FM addresses these disparities by serving as a hub for the training and employment of broadcast professionals, musicians and engineers.
