About Columbus Jazz Alliance

Columbus Jazz Alliance provides all station operations, including programming and management required to handle
the daily operations of Jazz 98.5 FM, WSAX. Nothing else has changed. The same great WSAX Team continues to
operate the station. The name Columbus Jazz Alliance better reflects who we are and what we do.

Our affiliate SEMM Foundation will continue to provide our music education support services that offers private and
group music lessons to students of all ages and levels, including free
private vocal and instrumental music lessons
to underprivileged children.

Over the past several years, SEMM Foundation was responsible for providing programming, operating and media services,
as well as for the successful development, licensing and implementation of our WSAX jazz radio station.

In September, 2020, the FCC renewed the WSAX license for 8 years.
