Jonathan Palevsky

Host - Jonathan Palevsky

Jonathan plays guitar and rides a bicycle, but not at the same time.

Greetings, I’m Jonathan Palevsky, Program Director here at WBJC. I have had the pleasure of working for the station since 1986 when I became a part-time announcer. I have been the station’s Program Director since 1990. I am originally from Montreal and came to Baltimore in 1982 to study classical guitar at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. I have hosted just about every conceivable time slot at WBJC, but can regularly be heard hosting the WBJC Operafest, our music review program Face the Music and the CD reissue program Past Masters.

My current off-air obsessions include skiing,  playing guitar and  and being the host of Cinema Sundays at the Charles Theatre.
