Student Media Organizations
Student Media both publicizes and reports on events on the Georgia State campus. The Signal provides a campus calendar of events. GSTV provides both live and recorded coverage of campus professors, speakers and staff, as well as in-depth interviews. Album 88 provides at least one Public Service Announcement per hour devoted to events related to Georgia State.
Student Media also provides a number of ways for its audiences to be informed about local and national events. The Signal and GSTV feature both news reporting and editorials on a variety of issues within the university and across the nation. Album 88 provides five minute news updates throughout the weekdays as well as nationally syndicated issues programming and the student-produced, hour long program The Hub on Wednesday afternoons.
Student Media profiles local musicians and writers. New South provides a number of readings featuring its volunteers and other members of the Georgia State English department and Atlanta English community. Album 88 frequently features local bands in its regular rotation as well as on the weekly Wednesday evening program, The Georgia Music Show. The annual Album 88 Fest also features local music artists. Additionally, GSTV provides interviews of local artists.
Student Media also profiles cutting edge artists from across the United States. Album 88 is celebrated by the College Media Journal for providing an up-to-date rotation emulated by stations across the United States. Both The Signal and GSTV feature movie, television and CD reviews. New South solicits contributions from the best writers from across the United States and beyond.
Student Media reports school athletics both during and after the event.

The Signal provides reviews of athletics across the school from football to basketball to golf to volleyball. GSTV provides weekly Sports Beat programming as well as an exclusive first run of the coach’s show (Georgia State Football) during the fall semester.
