NWPR Launches Jazz Station
Launched on November 1, 2013, KJEM serves the thriving community of jazz fans and musicians 24 hours a day on 89.9 FM in Pullman and Moscow, and available worldwide through online streaming.
Unlike the other NWPR stations, KJEM will be run by students, but under the guidance of NWPR’s professional management team. It is part of The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication’s “teaching hospital” model, which provides students with hands-on training in real-world environments.
After turning on KJEM, Bruce R. McCaw sat down with NWPR News Director John Paxson for this interview
An ongoing fundraising campaign is planned to support a variety of station programs and operations.
