From Scott Hanley, General Manager of WZUM, the Pittsburgh Jazz Channel
The June 2019 On-air Fundraising goal of $50,000 has been met!
The WZUM June fund drive was a fairly low-key affair, with more music and much less fundraising. WZUM was also busy helping to support and promote the performers, presenters, listeners and educators in the jazz scene around Pittsburgh.
Public radio is about the public, about service and community. While the fund drive is over, we still encourage you to support the station if you’ve yet to make a gift, would like to renew, or increase your support.
If you listen, we hope you encourage others to check out WZUM, too - many don’t know that I have come back to Pittsburgh, or that WZUM even exists. Your kind word could do an amazing amount of good, building awareness and community for the long-term.
If you've already made a gift, thank you very much! Your generosity is invaluable to WZUM, and important for Pittsburgh. We are humbled to be a part of your life as Pittsburgh's jazz station. We ask for your support to keep that relationship going, and growing.
Again, please share the news of WZUM and the growth of jazz in Pittsburgh - it is a story of resilience and creativity that includes WZUM and so much more, including you.

A membership in WZUM can fit into just about anyone’s budget. One of the easiest ways is to make a RECURRING Gift of a monthly, recurring, amount that can be automatically deducted from your credit or debit card until you tell us to stop. There’s an option for monthly, recurring, sustaining gifts on the website, or just inform our operator you’d like to make a sustaining gift.
Your monthly, recurring gift of $10, $20, $50 or more can build up to a great ongoing foundation for supporting the Pittsburgh Jazz Channel. The annual total gift also qualifies you for any thank-you gifts that your donation would entitle you to, too!
Make a Challenge
We also suggest a “Challenge” gift, one which can be either a conditional gift or an additional gift, based on matching a fundraising goal met by others. Challenges by ongoing supporters like you can generate more financial support by helping prompt other, first-time contributors to follow year lead and support WZUM. Put a note in the comments section of your pledge, or send an email to email@example.com to help make a magic public radio jazz moment!

AM and FM Jazz Radio for Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh is of the most important cities in jazz. Pittsburgh Public Media (PPM) has been busy over the past eight years building a vibrant music and public service channel, online and over the air.
In 2013, we acquired 88.1 FM from Bethany, WV, serving the Ohio Valley.
In 2016, PPM acquired AM 1550, Braddock PA.
In 2017, 101.1 FM goes on the air to cover the heart of Pittsburgh.
Jazz lovers in our region are pitching in to keep this dream alive. You can help, too! Make a contribution to WZUM, online, or send a check to:
