Students get the chance to produce a variety of music programing at WMRT-FM.

WMRT-88.3 FM

WMRT-FM is a 9,200-watt stereo station located on Marietta College's campus and has an audience throughout Southeast Ohio and Western West Virginia. The station provides cultural and
informational programming, local, regional, national and international news and sports, and over 100 hours a week of classical and jazz music. Its programming is supported, to some extent, by underwriting from area businesses and listeners.

Numerous Marietta College students are involved in the day-to-day operation of the station with the goals of honing their skills and producing original programming.

WMRT-FM is also the home for Marietta College athletics. Student crews regularly broadcast Pioneer action live on the air and stream audio live on the Internet with the help of communications consulting firm Offenberger and White, Inc., and www.MariettaOnline.com.

Students can gain experience as board operators, announcers and disk jockeys on WMRT-88.3 FM. Opportunities range from classical music announcing for an automation system to technical directing for football broadcasts.
