BusinessWeek magazine called us “one of the best radio stations in the world”
We received our broadcasting license in 1947 and continue to thrive as an independent voice in a marketplace dominated by several large broadcasters. Over the years, our format and technology have changed, but our mandate remains the same - to enrich the cultural, educational and arts experience of listeners around the world.
We have built a passionate and loyal audience who craves diversity and musical sophistication, embraced through an all-jazz format within a non-profit, arts and education context. With 700,000+ listeners tuning in via one of the many ways to access us - radio, web, or our iPhone, iPad or Android apps – we have proven that there is a place for an independent voice. More than a broadcaster, JAZZ.FM91 offers youth education programs (with over 1,000 youth participating each year), adult education, and live concerts and events through-out the year (over 7,000 attend annually).
