WJSP-FM

WJSP-FM (88.1 FM) is the Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) Public radio station serving Columbus and all of west-central Georgia. It shares a radio tower with GPB TV station WJSP-TV just outside Warm Springs, Georgia, its city of license. The station was one of the first GPB radio stations, first broadcasting in 1984. Unlike some of the other stations in the system, WJSP-FM only simulcasts the GPB radio network, with no local programs.

TranslatorsEdit

For some years, the station was also heard in Atlanta on W264AE FM 100.7, until it was forced permanently off-air in 2001 by commercial radio station WWWQ (now WNNX FM 100.5, which relocated from Anniston, Alabama, on an adjoining frequency. This left the GPB headquarters city without its own station, and also forced WGHR to go permanently off-air as well. However, WABE FM 90.1 and to some extent WCLK FM 91.9 (which are not part of the GPB system) air NPR/PRI programming, and classical and jazz music to metro Atlanta.

WJSP-FM was relayed by an additional three broadcast translators to widen its broadcast area.
