In an effort to help keep Floridians safe, WFIT and other Florida public radio stations have joined forces with the Florida Division of Emergency Management to form the new statewide Florida Public Radio Emergency Network (FPREN). The FPREN utilizes the state’s public radio outlets to share critical emergency information statewide through radio, various mobile media technologies, and battery-powered devices.
Monday night at 10, WFIT will broadcast a very special live recording of jazz guitarist and host of WFIT’s Freedom in the Groove, Matt Heister. Matt will be leaving WFIT to pursue new and exciting opportunities in the music world.
Last month we recorded Matt and his NYC Jazz Trio when they performed at our broadcast booster party in our new performance studio. This will be the first live session recording from this incredible new studio.
WFIT will air this special live recording on Monday night at 10pm on WFIT 89.5 FM and streaming at wfit.org.
