As radio in general faces competition from streaming and on-demand services, podcasting, online video, and social media for attention, so also does jazz radio. Yet each week, millions of people nationwide -- including 900,000 in New York and Los Angeles -- tune into jazz stations over the air and online. What is the impact of jazz radio airplay for an artist? How is jazz radio expanding its reach and relevance via streaming, video, podcasting, and social media? A panel of innovative jazz radio managers and hosts examines the influence radio airplay still has and why exposure on radio remains important for artists and labels.

Moderator: Ed Trefzger (JazzWeek).
Panelists: Arturo Gomez (KUVO), Derrick Lucas (WGMC), Joni Lupovitz (NPR), Kayonne Riley (WUCF).
