KSDS Jazz 88.3 receives national award from The Corporation for Public Broadcasting

City College’s Jazz 88.3 received a My Source Community Impact Award for Engagement from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for its music education initiatives in the San Diego Community on April 28.

The annual Music Matters instrument donation program for city schools, and annual CMEA middle and high school jazz festival were a significant part of the reason for the station’s recognition, according a press release.

“Supporting music education in schools plays an integral role in our station’s mission to preserve and promote Jazz,” KSDS station manager Mark Deboskey said.

CPB created the My Source Community Impact Awards for Engagement to recognize stations for their “commitment and responsiveness to their communities” as well as providing measurable on-air, online and in-person results, according to the release. The CPB luncheon and award ceremony will take place at the Public Radio Development & Marketing Conference on July 8 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel.

Broadcasting “authentic jazz,” the full-time, non-profit station is “dedicated to promoting the arts in San Diego.” For more information, visit http://www.jazz88.org.
