Protesters challenging GEORGIA STATE UNIVERSITY's plan to turn daytime hours at noncommercial WRAS (ALBUM 88)/ATLANTA over to GEORGIA PUBLIC BROADCASTING has resulted in additional weekend hours for the student-run music format and the college "pursuing options to secure daytime broadcast time for ALBUM 88" by hiring "engineers and other media consultants to pursue an alternate translator frequency for ALBUM 88."
The new hours for ALBUM 88 broadcasts on the WRAS analog signal will be weekdays 7p-5a (ET) and weekends 6p-8a, the latter being an addition to the original plan. The format will stream live 24/7. Meanwhile, GPB's News-Talk programming launched on WRAS SUNDAY (6/29).
