WJSR is a non-commercial, FM radio station that is licensed to Jefferson State Community
College in Birmingham, AL. It first went on the air in 1978, originally operating with only 10
watts of power. However, in 1985, the power was increased to the present 100 watts. So, if you
are heading to Birmingham from Jefferson State, you can pick up WJSR until you get to Tarrant,
and going in the other direction, the signal reaches somewhere around Palmerdale. WJSR
operates on an assigned frequency of 91.1 (FM). The station shares this frequency with the
student station at Samford University (WVSU).
WJSR offices and studios are located in the lower level of the George Layton Nursing Education
Building (GLB). The station is currently in operation five days a week, Monday through
Friday when classes are in session. Operating hours are determined each semester. Click
