WUSF, 89.7 has a decades-long tradition of bringing you the best in jazz all night, every night. Our knowledgeable and personable hosts -- Bob Seymour, Mike Cornette, Whitney James, Mark Feinman, and Richard Jimenez -- present the jazz classics along with the best new releases every hour, all night long. We hope you’ll check out our playlist here on the WUSF website, and appreciate your joining us as often as you can for America’s music – jazz – in the late night and early morning hours.

Christian McBride

Jazz Night in America is the next generation of jazz programming from NPR Music, WBGO, Jazz at Lincoln Center and clubs across America. This multi-platform show is hosted by Christian McBride, a multiple Grammy award-winning musician. The program features storytelling with concert performances, connecting jazz enthusiasts and potential new fans with artists and venues — and each other — through weekly, one-hour broadcasts and an array of 26 live signature videocasts and on-demand video of jazz events from today's great artists and venues.

Marian McPartland

For more than 30 years, Marian McPartland brought us illuminating visits with artists from the jazz world and beyond. These hours of music and conversation form a rich broadcast legacy only Marian could have created. It's an invaluable archive we sample from every Saturday evening on WUSF, your NPR station.
