90s BoomboxSo why make this station?
Our founder grew up in New England and loved listening to kids' radio, including Radio Disney and a show called "The Playground" on WERS-FM Boston. When he wasn't listening to the radio, he was playing his own CDs and tapes, pretending to be a DJ on his favorite stations!

As our founder grew up and moved to Pittsburgh, he wanted his own children to someday have the same access to a local radio station just for them... but there were none in his new home city! So in late 2020, he started to create JUMP 105.3, and the station officially launched on air and online on February 1, 2021!
