History

WIBR signed on the air in 1948 as a locally-owned Middle of the Road (MOR)/Full service outlet. After changing hands and formats in the 1980s and 1990s (including a period broadcasting Sports), the station switched to a news/talk format in 2002.

The talk format ended on November 15 2005 and was briefly replaced with urban music, until WIBR debuted an African-American oriented "urban talk" format. The station featured a lineup of syndicated talk shows mostly produced by Radio One, including a program hosted by Rev. Al Sharpton.

On February 19, 2007, the station switched to its current format of sports talk radio. [http://www.businessreport.com/newsDetail.cfm?aid=10916] In addition to the ESPN Radio programming, the station airs four local sports talk shows [http://www.thepressboxshow.com/ The Pressbox Show] , with host Jimmy Ott, THE RANT presented by [http://www.tigerdroppings.com TigerDroppings.com] , The Water Boys with Tony King is Funny and Eric Lacassin, and The Coach's Corner with Joe the Pro and Coach Bennett.

The station's transmitter was damaged as Hurricane Gustav swept through Baton Rouge. WIBR has been off the air since September 1, 2008.
