Zivit Shlank

Jazz Host

It was inevitable that Zivit Shlank would land a career in the music industry. Since growing up in Brooklyn, New York, she's always been immersed in a musical world; she played vibes, flute, and xylophone in school bands and orchestras, and has been singing in jazz, gospel, and traditional choirs, and performing in talent shows throughout her life.

In college, Zivit's horizons expanded when she worked for CHRY Community Radio in Toronto. A desire to share her passion for music with others led her to WRTI in 2006 while she was studying broadcasting at Temple University. What started as a weekly jazz-hosting gig led to many opportunities, including working with the Creatively Speaking team, increased hosting duties, and producing WRTI's Sunday Afternoon Concert broadcasts for Symphony in C.

Zivit continues to learn from her WRTI mentors and the jazz community, and is happy to be a part of the WRTI family.

Zivit can be heard during the week from Wednesday through Friday, 12 midnight to 6 am, on Wednesdays as host of the All-Request Show from 12 midnight to 3 am, on Saturdays from 2 to 6 am, and as a substitute host.

Zivit Recommends: The Mosaic Project

Drummer, composer, producer, and vocalist Terri Lyne Carrington has been on the scene for over 20 years, and her interpretation of jazz has always blurred the alleged boundaries of the genre.
