Clark Atlanta University's Radio Station is Top in Nation


A feature by Crystal Caviness

Clark Atlanta University’s radio station, WCLK, can add a new tagline to its logo: the number one jazz station in the nation! The accolade was earned recently by the smooth jazz-formatted station owned and operated by United Methodist-related Clark Atlanta University (CAU). 

The numbers are impressive, with Nielsen reporting 265,000 listeners per week. WCLK, known as Atlanta’s Jazz Station 91.9, has been on the air for 46 years, offering music, news and hands-on opportunities for CAU students in the mass media arts program.

Uplifting his audience is a part of the station’s mission that Morris Baxter (pictured) takes seriously. Host of “Morning Jazz with Morris in the Morning,” Baxter, a lifelong United Methodist who attends Cascade UMC, has been working WCLK’s 6-10 a.m. morning shift for the past 14 years.
