Mission:
WBGO is a publicly-supported, cultural institution that champions jazz and presents news to a worldwide audience through radio, other technologies and events.

Organizational values that guide WBGO in accomplishing its mission are:

* A belief in the vibrancy and continuance of jazz as a cultural art form

* Educational outreach is an important part of the station’s programming

* A diverse, open workplace that supports the development and enhancement of the staff’s talents and skills

* Listeners, members and the general public deserve to be treated with respect, quality service and information
Results:
In December 2011, WBGO flipped the switch on a new antenna and transmission system atop 4 Times Square in Manhattan, enabling the station to improve its signal for a potential million listeners.

WBGO's News Department continues to be among the most award winning news teams in New Jersey, and across the public media spectrum.
