Today marks the launch of BIN 1600 AM: Black Information Network, the first and only 24/7 national and local all news audio service dedicated to providing an objective, accurate and trusted source of continual news coverage with a Black voice and perspective.
1600 AM: Black Information Network can be found on 1600 AM as well as distributed nationally through the iHeartRadio app and accessible via mobile, smart speakers, smart TVs and other connected platforms, and on dedicated all-news local broadcast AM/FM radio stations. In New York, listeners can tune in to WWRL for 24/7 national and local news focused on serving the Black community and providing an information window for those outside the community to help foster communication, accountability and a deeper understanding.
With the station launch just 12 hours before election day, BIN commentator Roland Martin will anchor live news coverage beginning at 7 p.m. ET on election night 2020 and provide updates as the polls close and election tallies are reported nationwide on the race between President/Vice President incumbents Donald Trump/Mike Pence and Democratic challengers Joseph Biden/Kamala Harris.
To celebrate the launch of New York's 1600 AM: Black Information Network the Empire State Building illuminated its world-famous tower lights and turn red, white, and green tonight (November 2nd). See the beautiful shots below!
