At that time, the Orchestra's local broadcasts moved to WRTI
, which chose to divide its broadcast day between classical and jazz.
a company based in the Philadelphia area which provides a turnkey solution for the real-time delivery of video and audio via the Internet, has helped to enable classical music lovers to plug in to Temple University's WRTI 90.

The series will be broadcast on Temple University Public Radio, WRTI 90.
We are deeply gratified by our partnership with WRTI, the Official Radio Station of The Philadelphia Orchestra," Mr.
Maxey praised the partnership with the University and with WRTI, the Number One public radio station in the region.
