Jazz Near You's effort to promote livestream jazz events has received an added boost thanks to a collaboration with WRTI 90.1 FM
in Philadelphia. In addition to accessing livestream events from the Jazz Near You website, the weekly Jazz Near You newsletter, the Jazz Near You app, and from external websites & blogs that embed the Jazz Near You livestream calendar widget and feed, WRTI will use the Jazz Near You's livestream calendar to promote the events that are uploaded
to the website.
Maureen Malloy, Jazz Music Director at WRTI adds, We are all currently navigating new terrain, and we want to support our local jazz artists who aren’t able to work. Live streams have become the new concert, and this collaboration is a great way to champion musicians from Philadelphia and beyond while helping them to create a virtual audience.”
