Do YOU have what it takes?

Commitment. Passion. Vision. 

These are but a few of the characteristics we’re searching for on campus this year to help launch Oglethorpe’s newest media outlet, The Storm. Beginning Fall 2016, The Storm founders will be recruiting a passionate team of students dedicated to bringing the news to Oglethorpe. This will be The Storm’s first year on campus. As such, we are on a quest to find students that have what it takes to pioneer the future and vision of The Storm.

History

Oglethorpe University has a rich history in the radio/broadcasting industry. In 1931, Oglethorpe’s first radio station was established as WJTL, and for many years the station was dedicated to the broadcast of educational programming designed for the public to take additional instruction on various University subjects. In 1935, WJTL was purchased by a private organization and moved to downtown Atlanta. The call letters were changed to WATL at this time and is still in existence today, as a television channel. The goal of The Storm is to bring back that dedication and re-create a radio station that anyone can listen to, at any time.
