WBXK-CA (channel 8) was Jackson, Mississippi's America One affiliate, broadcasting at 910 watts from a location on Jackson's west side.

History[edit]

It began broadcasting in January 1990 as W08CU, and was an over-the-air music-video outlet.

In the 1990s, WBXK was affiliated with the Video Jukebox Network, which was renamed The Box in 1991. The station's "programming" was basically music videos requested by non-cable viewers in the greater Jackson area.

On September 1, 1995, the station's call letters changed from W08CU to WBXK.

In 2001, WBXK remained a music video station even though it inevitably became an over-the-air MTV 2 affiliate (at the time known as M2, which absorbed The Box that year).

In mid-January 2005, WBXK had switched to an all-informercial format for about two weeks. On February 2, WBXK flipped to Urban America Television, flipping again to its next network, America One, in April 2006.
