Nachum Siegal will leave JM IN THE AM after 33 years!

In a dramatic and exciting on air presentation, Nachum Segal announced this morning that after 33 years of hosting Jewish Moments in the Morning (‘JM in the AM’) on WFMU radio, he will broadcast the program exclusively on NSN. The move is expected to occur on December 1, 2016.
Nachum, the ‘JM in the AM’ and NSN teams and WFMU management have emphasized that this agreement is completely amicable and that the radio station will assist in this noteworthy transition as much as possible.
“Over the next two months,” said Nachum Segal, “we will emphasize to our listeners in the New York and New Jersey area what our global listeners already know: how easy it is to listen to a clear and static free broadcast.”
Segal explained that between the NSN app on smartphones and iPads, web-radios, computer desktops, the listener call in-line and many other options, ‘JM in the AM’ will continue to flourish as the radio program of record of the Jewish world. “The move exclusively to NSN,” he continued, “will give us the opportunity to provide a longer, stronger, more exciting program with greater global reach, every morning and 24 hours a day.”
WFMU, licensed as a non-profit radio station, adheres to the guidelines of charitable and non-commercial radio. With the move of ‘JM in the AM’ exclusively to NSN, the program, its host, its content and its reach will be allowed greater creative flexibility and sponsorship opportunities.
First arriving at WFMU in 1983 as a junior from Yeshiva College, Segal has built an incredible daily broadcast legacy which includes music, community information and in-depth interviews. Known as the voice of the Jewish people, his on-air presence and participation in major community events lends professionalism and importance to community functions.
Ken Freedman, General Manager at WFMU since 1983, added that, “Nachum has been a priceless asset to WFMU. He has grown his brand and network to an incredible degree. We will do everything we can in the next couple of months to help facilitate his growth and success.”
WFMU has indicated that they will not be featuring Jewish programming in the morning time slot.
NSN can be heard 24 hours a day at Nachumsegal.com, on the NSN app for android and iPhone and on the call in listen line.
