Josh Jackson

WVTF and RADIO IQ Public Radio have announced that Josh Jackson has joined Virginia’s regional public radio service as Program Director and Content Manager. Jackson’s move comes after 13 years at jazz station WBGO Newark/New York City, where he was Vice President of Content.

While in New York, Jackson also co-founded Joyride Media and was an associate producer for Murray Street Productions. Prior to WBGO he held various positions at WWOZ -FM in New Orleans.

“This new position puts me on a different track within public broadcasting,” Jackson told JazzTimes. “Coming to WVTF-RADIO IQ was the right move for my career and my family, and the opportunity arrived at a natural pivot point. I am proud of my efforts to support the music. I am honored to have connected with audiences via WBGO, National Public Radio and public media outlets nationwide through projects like The Checkout, Live at the Village Vanguard, The Checkout: Live and the many documentary productions of Joyride Media. “
