The Prowl

Students from The Prowl with Miss Pawla in the Student Center
The Prowl, the voice of Jag Nation, is the University of South Alabama's student-run radio station. Listen to us online or on the USA and TuneIn apps. Coming soon to 97.1 FM.

Description

The Prowl is the Voice of Jag Nation. We play a variety of music, sports, and talk programming. All programming is created by students for students.

The Prowl is currently transitioning from a streaming station to a 100 watt low-power FM station, servicing the main campus and surrounding areas.

The Prowl is divided into four departments, each governed by a student director -- programming (music, talk shows, on-air), promotions (giveaways, marketing, events), sports (in-game engineering, play-by-play and color announcing), and news/weather (recorded news, campus updates, news-related and public-affairs programming, and weather updates).

The Prowl is open to all currently-enrolled students, regardless of major. All positions are voluntary, except those decided by the Board of Student Communications.

History

A student envisioned the idea for a radio station at USA. He created an Internet-only station in 2010 named Jag Radio. The operation expanded quickly. In Spring 2012, Jag Radio became The Prowl.

On November 15, 2013, USA filed an application with the Federal Communications Commission for a low-power FM license. The FCC approved the application and awarded a construction permit to build the station on February 12, 2014. The FCC assigned 97.1 FM as the frequency and WJGR as the call sign.

Stay tuned for further developments.
