The Pittsburgh Symphony has been heard on the radio since radio began in Pittsburgh with early broadcasts on Pittsburgh’s KDKA in the 1920s. Its first network broadcasts appeared on the NBC Blue network in 1936. Today WQED is the official voice of the Pittsburgh Symphony. The station has broadcast weekly Pittsburgh Symphony concerts since 1974, and Jim Cunningham has been the host since 1980.
