Who is WZUM 1550?

WZUM is an adult R & B radio station serving the Greater Pittsburgh market.

The original WZUM-AM signed on in 1962 with an R&B format. Then at 1590 on the dial, the station was owned by the late James "Jimmy Pol" Psihoulis, who made local history with his recording of "Pittsburgh Steelers Polka."

WZUM is the former sister station to WRRK. The AM station has gone through several formats over the years, including an R&B and rock hybrid, an odd mix of album rock and polkas, followed by religious and then silence.

WZUM has gone full circle, settling down in 2013 with the original format of adult R & B.

WZUM's playlist is designed to appeal to all listeners. It's a mix of Pittsburgh top classic R&B hits.
