Allocate Student Affairs Funding for The Prowl


The Prowl, South Alabama's student-run radio station, are petitioning that SGA allocate a portion of student affairs funding to the creation of the radio station, as it transitions from online-based to fully FM.

We have already been approved for an FM license, and will soon be broadcasting on 97.1 WJGR-LP. However, in this transitional state, there is much work to be done. The studio equipment must be completely replaced, a tower and transmitter must be built, among other things. 

Every big college has their own radio station, and as South Alabama grows, we must keep up with the competing universities. USA does not current have a radio curriculum Having a radio station on campus would help improve student life by providing students with a way to gain professional experience in radio, allowing students to express themselves through unique shows or music, and also serve as a public service for students, informing them of current student events or important updates.

This isn't just a project of the Department of Communication, any current student at the university is welcome to join The Prowl. 

We ask that SGA allocate funding from student affairs to help with the creation of The Prowl as it transitions to FM. This is NOT an increase in tuition. This is a reallocation of money you have already paid to go to The Prowl.

You can listen to here or via the USA smartphone app.
