“New York City may be the center of the jazz world, but the radio beacon that its president calls “the only full-time jazz station in the jazz center of the universe” is located on this side of the river, in Newark, thank you very much. And at a time when New Jersey newspapers are suffering and our public TV network is in jeopardy, WBGO-FM—New Jersey’s first public radio station—is standing tall. In fact, it’s about to stand even taller.

A $3 million fundraising drive is expected to culminate later this year with the relocation of the station’s transmitter from the top of a 428-foot-tall building in downtown Newark to a building of twice that height in Manhattan, 4 Times Square.”
