A new documentary celebrating four decades of WBGO, the Newark-based jazz station, premiered at the New Jersey Film Festival on January 30, and hopes for wider distribution by the end of 2021. The WBGO Story…Bright Moments from Newark to the World tells the story of how a group of urban leaders and community activists looking to make a positive change in Newark came together in the '70s after the Newark riots, to create WBGO, New Jersey's first public radio station.
