A New FM Jazz Service for Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is of the most important cities in jazz. This community needs and deserves a radio station to showcase this cultural force. Pittsburgh Public Media (PPM) has been busy over the past six years building a vibrant music and public service back to the Pittsburgh radio airwaves. 

  • The Pittsburgh Jazz Channel was started by Pittsburgh Public Media (PPM) in 2011. 
  • In 2013, we added 88.1 FM from Bethany, WV.
  • In 2016, PPM acquired AM 1550, Braddock PA. 
  • Because we own AM 1550, the FCC has allowed PPM to acquire a rare new signal at 101.1 FM to cover the heart of Pittsburgh.
  • The new 101.1FM will be on the air full-time in December 2017!
