The WFMT Radio Network also offers exclusive programming from Germany's Deutsche Welle Radio, and a wide range of classical, folk, jazz, and public affairs programs to radio outlets around the world.
Over the years the WFMT Radio Network programs have won every major award and honor in broadcasting. These include the Prix Italia, George Foster Peabody Award, Major Armstrong Awards, Ohio State Awards and awards from the International Radio Festival of New York.
The Beethoven Satellite Network is the all-classical 12-hour service hosted by Peter Van De Graaff. Produced at WFMT's state-of-the-art broadcast studios, radio outlets nationally air portions of the 12-hour presentations. Program Director and host, Peter Van De Graaff, programs the service conservatively, while focusing on the standards of the repertoire, he doesn't hesitate to go beyond that and draws from the rich and varied music that comprises all of what we call "classical music." The Beethoven Satellite Network is the reliable and quality programming leader in classical music format service.
The Jazz Satellite Network is the leader in mainstream nightly satellite-delivered jazz programming, selected and hosted by legendary jazz expert Bob Parlocha. The Jazz Satellite Network is spirited and involving radio with a local sound and appeal. Offered 12-hours nightly, Parlocha entertains listeners with a creative, engaging musical mix and a brief, but friendly conversational rapport, talk is always kept to a minimum. The music, not the host is the focal point of our programming.
The Beethoven and Jazz Satellite Network services are available to all ContentDepot affiliates, offering hourly rates so you only pay for the hours you use.
