The Atlanta Chapter is working on a project to revamp the home of the original 1949 WERD Dial 860 facility.


Included with this project the facility will house a historical  National Black Radio History Museum recognizing the community heroes in radio broadcasting; who, would otherwise not get recognized.  Included will be a historical database of individuals who were a part of Black Radio, from Jack Cooper in 1929 to present day terrestrial and internet announcers, promoters and staff.
