WTJX Gets a New Name and a New Tower

It turns out that WTJX is actually an NPR-affiliated station in the Virgin Islands so our student station has spent the last several months searching for a suitable alternative callsign. WASP, WTJR , WTOP, WTJT, WTJO..Nothing was quite right. Turns out, the answer was in front of their eyes the whole time:


So our student radio station WTJX will now officially go by WXTJ. Not only that but soon they’ll be broadcasting over FM at 100.1 FM for Charlottesville residents!  It’s only been a couple years but the students have been hard at work building a true college radio station.  You’ll have to wait until the start of the Fall 2015 semester to hear WXTJ DJs but the wait will undoubtedly be worth it!

Here’s a small announcement video they put together in celebration:
