For those who haven't heard.....here is a link to the PG's story about the foundations choosing not to act on their option to purchase WDUQ.
Many people spoke passionately about the importance they placed on having jazz remain a prominent part of 90.5's programming. This public advocacy was critical to the foundations decision.
This forum provided a place for an important exchange of ideas that helped inform the public dialog and I thank everyone who joined in the discussion.
Now the group Pittsburgh Public Media will continue it's negotiations with Duquesne University to buy the license. PPM is committed to news,jazz and npr programming as it exists now. I encourage everyone who cares about supporting that commitment to jazz to visit the website pittsburghpublicmedia.org and encourage others to do so. This is the group that represents the future of jazz radio in Pittsburgh.
Again,...thank you very much ......people speaking publicly have made a difference.
