The WZUM Spring Fund Drive Success!

WZUM's first-ever on-air pledge drive raised more in the month of May than ever before!

Our new budget year began July 1, and we are hoping to keep that momentum going. As a new public radio station, the number of donors at any amount is very important to make WZUM a long-term success.

Please make a new, renewing or addition gift to support the return of jazz to the Pittsburgh airwaves and as a vital voice for our community.

Your gift by credit card or check will be a big help. Contribute online through the “Donate Now” button

or send a check to:


PO Box 456

South Park, PA, 15129



A membership in WZUM can fit into just about anyone’s budget. One of the easiest ways is to make a “SUSTAINING” Gift of a monthly, recurring, amount that can be automatically deducted from your credit or debit card. 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 to help make a magic public radio jazz moment!

For WZUM's Fiscal Year-end celebration, it's all about Pittsburgh and Jazz.



There are legions of great artists in the past present and future of jazz who have strong roots in Pittsburgh. To start our salute of them, we've selected a few gems that reflect just a few of the great talents of our region. We've even added a project that ties together the sounds of jazz and the iconic photography of Teenie Harris!

A New FM Jazz Service for Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is of the most important cities in jazz. Pittsburgh Public Media (PPM) has been busy over the past seven years building a vibrant music and public service channel, online and over the air. 

  • The Pittsburgh Jazz Channel was started by Pittsburgh Public Media (PPM) in 2011. 
  • In 2013, we added 88.1 FM from Bethany, WV, serving much of the Ohio Valley.
  • In 2016, PPM acquired AM 1550, Braddock PA. 
  • In 2017, PPM launched PPM a rare new signal at 101.1 FM 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:
