Speak Out: Is there a market for Black news and talk radio in city?

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Eddie Edwards recently stated he was in the process of buying a Black news/talk AM radio station. So we asked Pittsburghers would they support him and this is what you said:

Yes, because we are missing WAMO. We are the only city without a Black radio station. If you don’t have a CD or cassette player you’re stuck.

Yes, but it needs to be more than just talk. We are lacking in talk and music. We took WAMO for granted. Now that they are not here we miss them. There is also no voice for the community, There a need for something.

Yes. Black people are yearning for some type of culture to listen to. Something they can relate to. We don’t even have WAMO any more.

Yes. To talk about Black issues from health to religion and entertainment. There’s nothing here as far as entertainment for Black people except for bars.

East Liberty

Yes. I think any type of communication that is focused on our culture and also enlightens other cultures is great. To inform, educate in any arena is always welcomed.

We need an African-American talk show in the city because it keeps our culture informed on current issues of relevance. Even though we have newspapers the convenience of a talk show is better. It’s more stream lined to the African-American culture.
