ASU goes national during morning radio show

April 2, 2008

Albany -- Albany State University is turning 105 and will be on the country's radio air waves to celebrate.

The nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show will broadcast live from a community pep rally Thursday at the Hyper gym. This broadcast is part of ASU's Founder's Day celebration.

The Tom Joyner Morning Show chose Albany State University as their school of the month and will raise money for student scholarships.

"The phrase unsinkable Albany State came out of that flood in '94. And for us to be here after 105 years, we're just very, very excited to have the opportunity to celebrate that we are still here," said Interim Vice President for Institutional Development, Cliff Porter.

This broadcast can be heard throughout Southwest Georgia on F. M. radio station V 101.7. The community pep rally runs from seven to ten Thursday morning.
