    Head of Fundraising and Partnerships

    BusinessWeek magazine called us “one of the best radio stations in the world”

    We received our broadcasting license in 1947 and continue to thrive as an independent voice in a marketplace dominated by several large broadcasters.  Over the years our format and technology has changed, but our mandate remains the same - to enrich the cultural, educational and arts experience of listeners around the world.

    We have built a passionate and loyal audience who crave diversity and musical sophistication, embraced through an all-jazz format within a non-profit, arts and education context.  With 700,000+ listeners tuning in via one of the many ways to access us - radio, web, or our iPhone, iPad or Android apps – we have proven that there is a place for an independent voice. More than a broadcaster, JAZZ.FM91 offers youth education programs (with over 1,000 youth participating each year), adult education, and live concerts and events through-out the year (over 7,000 attend annually).

    If you love the arts, and are interested in making a difference in Toronto’s cultural landscape, we would love to hear from you!  We are seeking an energetic, innovative and entrepreneurial individual to fill the role of:
