Student Media Organizations
Georgia State student media both publicizes and reports on events on campus. The Signal provides a campus calendar of events. GSTV will provide both live and recorded coverage of campus professors, speakers, and staff, as well as in-depth interviews. WRAS provides at least one Public Service Announcement per hour devoted to events relating to Georgia State.
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. WRAS provides five-minute news updates throughout the weekdays as well as nationally syndicated issues programming and the student-produced, hour-long “The Hub” program on Wednesday afternoons.
Georgia State 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. WRAS frequently features local bands in its regular rotation as well as on the weekly Wednesday evening program, the Georgia Music Show. The annual WRASFest benefit (held each December) also features local music artists. Additionally, GSTV provides interviews of local artists.
Georgia State student media also profiles cutting-edge artists from across the United States. WRAS-Atlanta 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.
Georgia State student media reports school athletics both during and after the event. WRAS-Atlanta provides live broadcasts of all football games, men’s and women’s basketball games (with online streaming) as well as a select number of baseball games.
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.
