Barbara Clark

Development Director

Raised in the animated city of New Orleans, Barbara traveled upriver to attend LSU, graduating from the university with degrees in Psychology and Anthropology.

She worked in business development for WAFB-TV and the Baton Rouge Business Report for 15 years before joining WRKF in 2010.

Barbara and her husband took two years in the middle of their lives to roll across America in a refurbished motorhome, venturing all the way to Alaska. They have since settled in suburban Baton Rouge to raise their two children and three dogs.
