The Don and Derek Black Show was a radio program broadcast five times a week from the Lake Worth, Florida-based radio station WPBR/1340. Although WPBR has a large Haitian-American audience, the radio show promoted the ideology of white nationalism. Derek Black is the son of Don Black, founder of the large white nationalist discussion forum Stormfront.org. However, Derek Black has renounced white nationalism along with an apology to those he believes may have been harmed by his past actions and beliefs.[1][2] This renunciation has upset his father and other white nationalists and supremacists.[3]

The first broadcast was in February 2010; the featured guest for the debut episode of the program was Gordon Lee Baum, cofounder of the Council of Conservative Citizens.[4]

Format[edit]

The show ran from 9 to 10 A. M. Monday through Friday.[5] Its opening theme music consisted of Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner and the song "I'm a White Boy" by country musician Merle Haggard. The show covered national and local news.
