Student Media Organizations
Students, faculty and the general community can keep track of news developments on Georgia State University campuses and in Atlanta through a variety of Student Media outlets.
The Signal is the primary source for student-gathered news on campus. The paper features original investigative journalism in addition to features on arts communities on campus and within Atlanta. As well as publishing weekly editions in the fall and spring semesters, the website is updated daily with breaking news developments. GSTV’s Panther Report provides regular video news updates via its YouTube channel.
Student Media provides an outlet to create awareness for happenings on campus. The Signal provides a campus calendar of events in addition to frequently covering student-led clubs and events. GSTV provides both live and recorded coverage of campus professors, speakers and staff, as well as in-depth interviews.
Student Media profiles local musicians and writers. Both New South and Underground provide a number of readings featuring its volunteers and other members of the Georgia State English department and Atlanta English community. Underground is a venue for undergraduate students to publish their creative works, and it has recently expanded its focus beyond literature to focus on music and experimental audio pieces.
Album 88 frequently features local bands in its regular rotation as well as on the The Georgia Music Show. Students film and record local artists for 88 Sessions in the Cinefest venue in Student Center West.
GSTV is an avenue for student filmmakers to pursue their creative vision, with a production staff that works over the course of three semesters to develop original programs, conduct principal filming and edit and finalize the content in the Spring semester. This year’s work can be found on the production section of GSTV’s YouTube channel.
Student interested in reviewing pop culture and interviewing artists are encouraged to volunteer for The Signal which regularly features movie, television and CD reviews.
Student Media covers school athletics both during and after events. Album 88 provides live broadcasts of GSU football and select basketball games. The Signal provides reviews of athletics across the school from football to basketball to golf to volleyball. GSTV provides both sports news and talk via its flagship program Primetime Sportz.
