Jazz Podium is a German-language jazz magazine published ten times a year (monthly, double issues July / August, December / January) . It was founded in 1952 - the first issue appeared in Vienna in September 1952  - and long edited by Dieter Zimmerle . After his death, Gudrun Endress was the long-time editor-in-chief (and managing director with Frank Zimmerle) from 1989 to 2018 and Stuttgart was the seat of the magazine until 2018. Its original title was The international podium with the latest releases from the German Jazz Federation . At first the magazine managed with twenty pages. Today it's around eighty.

In addition to portraits of musicians and interviews, the magazine contains current jazz news, reviews of CDs, films and books and information on planned concert and club appearances or festival and radio programs in German-speaking countries and in some neighboring countries. The magazine is aimed at musicians as well as interested laypeople of all generations.

The authors (musicologists, jazz experts, musicians), photographers and editors only write and work for an expense allowance. There are around 100 freelance workers. In 2002, the circulation was 12,000 copies, most of which are sold by subscription.

Jazzpodium GmbH is based in Bernried am Starnberger See. The managing directors are Anja Freckmann and Adam Olschewski, who is also editor-in-chief.
