WACK 90.1 FM has a large foreign listenership thanks to its totally local content. 

Now, the San Fernando-based station is strengthening its global presence with the move of its live program from New York to a primetime slot on Saturdays from 2 pm to 3 pm.

The show, Globally WACK with  Eric St Bernard, plays a large percentage of new soca music from around the world, and the veteran broadcaster uses his extensive knowledge of Trinidad and Tobago and abroad to bridge the gap between our diaspora and advertisers.

“In January 2019, we brought Eric St. Bernard on board to produce and host Globally WACK live from New York, as part of the station’s programming. It is a tremendous success with our listeners and advertisers around the world, said Kenny Phillipsm founder of WACK.

"Eric is a highly qualified and experience broadcaster of soca and calypso music. He has worked at the highest levels of broadcasting in New York and Trinidad and Tobago. He will be an asset to the station, our advertisers and our large listenership around the world who tune in via the WACK app and online on Tunein radio, YouTube or Facebook, for year round programming of soca, Trinbago music, culture and information.”

The official agreement with Phillips and St. Bernard took place at the first annual, ‘Day One’ event in Brooklyn, New Year.

The event was hosted by the WACK Fanclub New York, as part of the Labor Day celebrations and brought  WACK supporters and listeners from all over North America.
