Did you know that WBGO is Newark Public Radio? It's not just the station's corporate name, it is part of everything we do. We are proud to be the community radio station for New Jersey's largest city.
This month, WBGO and other Newark arts organizations are teaming up to showcase the amazing cultural richness that exists in Newark. This effort, spearheaded by the Newark Convention & Visitors Bureau is called Endless Arts October.
WBGO activities during Endless Arts October include our partnership with the TD James Moody Democracy of Jazz Festival, The WBGO Kids Jazz Concert Series, Too Heavy for Words, a gallery exhibit at the station featuring works by four New Jersey photographers, which will be part of Newark Art's Open Doors celebration, and of course, our ongoing, award-winning jazz and news programming.
