CSU student broadcasters launch radio station

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Student broadcasters at Columbus State University will now have their voices broadcasted across the Fountain City.

CSU went live on Wednesday with its first radio station thanks to a local contribution.

Just after midnight, 88.5 WCUG-FM Cougar Radio signed onto Columbus' airwaves.

Operated by students under the direction of faculty and staff, the station enables university faculty and students to produce and broadcast original content 24 hours a day.

"It's a student-run student produced product and I think it's gonna be something really awesome for the students to grasp on to and kind of make their own,"  said Chris Robinson, director of NPACE Center.

In addition to original content, the station will offer a broadcast schedule of music and other programming to fit diverse tastes and interests.
