Many thanks for your support of the WBGO signal improvement project. While the hardware has been purchased, there are other, recurring costs that must be funded in order to keep this new system on the air. To date, we have raised 80%of the total project fundraising goal. You can help us raise the final 20% by speaking with WBGO's Major Gifts team: Beth Lasoff or John Newcott, at 973-624-8880 (ext. 285 for Beth, ext. 236 for John). Project success involves your active participation.

WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM will flip the switch on the much anticipated new transmitter and antenna system on top of 4 Times Square TODAY, Friday, December 30 at 1pm, during Midday Jazz with Rhonda Hamilton. We undertook this project to provide you with the best possible signal reception. WBGO's broadcast studios, production facility, and administrative offices-its nerve center-will remain in Newark.
Tune in and celebrate with us today at 1pm for this exciting occasion and afterwards, let us know how your reception has been affected by taking our survey. We thank each and every one of you who have supported the project and WBGO through the years and we look forward to a great future for jazz.
WBGO is a publicly-supported, cultural institution that champions jazz, an American art form, and presents news to a worldwide audience through radio, other technologies and events.
