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 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, 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.

There is also a signal expansion approved for 88.1 FM. Once complete, more than 1.2 million people will be in the service area of our FM signals.

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:
