WAKK fm

WAKK fm is a primarily gospel radio station in McComb, Mississippi and is a part of a number of affiliated stations providing a variety of content. 


The Stories

Our experience with WAKK was through the incredible Fern Crossley, a veteran broadcaster whose community radio shows provide authentic dialogue and local storytelling. She invited us in the booth for an interview along with Mr Sipp, artist Prudence Owens McGee, and McComb Modern Ambassador, Michael Guttuso.

At the age of 65 Fern Crossley continues to be a powerhouse in her McComb community and has kept her late husband Charles Crossley's studio alive through workshops and tours. She is still a central figure in town and has her own radio show on WAKK fm where she highlights local culture and creative economy.
