Albany--  Many of you listen to Albany State University's radio station. Now you can help them get national attention.

WASU 92.7 has been on the air since 2003. Students do all the work, from promotions to programming. In 2006, they won the Black College Radio Station of the Year award. They could win again this April.

They're also up for some individual awards and both students and managers are thankful they're hard work is being noticed.

"A lot of times, we underestimate our presence in the community because we offer so many different genres of music that we're able to touch different people so it's a good feeling that people are listening," said station manager Terence Turner.

The station is up for five awards including On-Air Personality of the Year and Most Community Involvement. You can vote for them on the internet through March 14th. 

You can visit www.blackcollegeradio.com/BCR29_POLL.html to vote in the poll.
