WQED-FM 89.3 and WQEJ-FM 89.7 TO BROADCAST

LIVE FROM AMERISERV FLOOD CITY MUSIC FESTIVAL


PITTSBURGH – WQED-FM 89.3 and WQEJ-FM 89.7 personalities will be on hand Saturday, August 7 from noon to 5pm for a live broadcast from the AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival in downtown Johnstown.

The stations’ Jim Sweenie will host the live broadcast, play classical music and talk on-air with members of the Johnstown arts community and Festival organizers.

The three-day music festival is held annually in downtown Johnstown. Stages are continually programmed over the course of the festival with over 20 groups, including headliners Los Lobos, Galactic and Robert Cray. The AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival is produced by the Johnstown Area Heritage Association, a non-profit that exists to preserve and showcase Johnstown’s nationally significant stories by providing high-quality educational, cultural and recreational experiences in the area’s unique historic settings.

In 1990, the Johnstown Area Heritage Association recruited the National Folk Festival to Johnstown for a three-year run, after which it began to produce the event on its own, renaming it the Johnstown FolkFest. AmeriServ Financial became the title sponsor a year later, and in 2009 the name was changed to AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival, to better convey that all types of music are presented.

WQED PITTSBURGH, honored with the 2007 and 2006 Mid-Atlantic Emmy® Award for Station Excellence, was founded in 1954 as the nation’s first community-supported broadcaster. WQED creates, produces and distributes quality programs, products and services to engage, inform, educate and entertain the public within its community and around the world.
