THE STORY:

When Pittsburgh lost its only Jazz radio station on the regular FM airwaves in 2011, it left a very deep void in the hearts of Jazz music lovers.  Some former WDUQ staff members banded together to continue the work and bring Jazz back to the air as Pittsburgh Public Media. The Pittsburgh Jazz Channel was created, first online, then WYZR-FM 88.1 (now WZUM-FM) serving the southern and western suburbs of Pittsburgh, and recently purchased WZUM-AM 1550. 

The FCC has approved a new FM station for Pittsburgh, owned and operated by Pittsburgh Public Media as WZUM that will bring a clear FM signal to Jazz listeners throughout Pittsburgh. The FCC has given us a short window in which to acquire the funding and build this facility. IT MUST BE BUILT BY THE END OF 2016 OR WE LOSE THE NEW WIDER-RANGE FM STATION AND SIGNAL!!! We have a long road before us!

We need YOUR HELP in order to build the FM station. That includes acquisition of facilities, equipment costs, tower space and more.

Pittsburgh has a great cultural heritage in Jazz and we support it every day.  We need your help to continue this work.  Please support the effort right now.

Local radio is one of the pillars of a strong community. Organized labor is another. It's only right that one helps the other when it can. 1 year ago
