A testament to the student-led innovation that runs throughout the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at UGA, WUOG is celebrating 40 years of serving the Athens community and providing a real world, learning lab experience for student interested in a career in radio.
Managed and run by students from Grady, the radio's budget is primarily supported through student activity funding with additional support coming from alumni and underwriting from local businesses.
For four decades, WUOG has provided an alternative to other media outlets through diverse and unique programming that focuses on music, news, public affairs and sports. As one of the largest college radio stations in the U.S., WUOG has strived to equip the next generation of journalists with the skills they need to succeed in the rapidly evolving landscape of communications.
