About Scott Hanley

An educator, manager, media professional, entrepreneur, technology advocate, musician, media and theatrical performer.

I am General Manager of WZUM AM/FM, the new independent public radio station serving the greater Pittsburgh Region, with a special, daily focus on Jazz programming.

I also teach, write, perform, and continue to engage in occasional consulting and project work.Open to opportunities and possibilities.

I am committed to making good things happen in media, technology and people-focused enterprise. As a part of my work, aspiring to build and sustain a society which allows  people to make a good living but to also live fulfilling, interesting lives.

I recently served as General Manager for WBHM-FM in Birmingham, Alabama, the NPR flagship in the Magic City.

For many years, I managed the leading NPR/public radio station in Pittsburgh, served for six very busy years on the NPR Board of Directors and have done much volunteer service for national organizations and local organizations in the communities I have been privileged to live and work in.  You can read up on some of that on my Linkedin profile.

A sometime musician, teacher, technology advocate (some might say, geek), dad to two fine young adult men.  I’ve been a journalist, art song singer and musical theater actor.  A bunch of other things, but that’s what google is for…

    Dear Scott,

    I just wanted to let you know how much I have missed our presence on WDUQ. You did a terrific job of managing WDUQ, bringing us so much jazz and so many important and enjoyable programs from NPR. I love listening to you late on Saturday nights. I hope that you are finding great satisfaction in your new position. Thank you so much for your dedicated leadership and service at WDUQ. I will miss both you and WDUQ tremendously. I find myself almost in a mourning state at losing both the station and you. I somehow feel that you were not only betrayed by EPM and Duquesne University, but also by NPR in which you played an active role. I wish you the best.
