In 2019 and 2020, the WFMT Radio Network, in partnership with the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and WDCB 90.9 FM, and with support from Choose Chicago, undertook an initiative to bring the Chicago Jazz Festival to listeners locally, nationally and internationally. As part of this project, the WFMT Radio Network showcased select recordings from the 2018 and 2019 Chicago Jazz Festival to a national audience through the Jazz Network.
