WGTS 91.9

For most of us, radio is a regular part of daily life. Have you ever stopped to consider what it takes to produce a show?

Yesterday, St. Louis School 8th Grade students got a virtual tour of local radio station WGTS 91.9 FM and learned exactly what it takes. Producer Spencer White and morning talk show hosts Jerry Woods and Blanca Vega welcomed us into their production room and answered student questions, covering everything from show preparation, music selection, and the technology and algorithms behind it.

WGTS is a Christian Radio station that inspires listeners with words of kindness, hope, and prayer. The morning show focuses on “starting your day with a smile, some inspiration and a good dose of audio coffee.”

We would like to express our thanks to the team at WGTS and to Ms. Sandy Osborne, our Music teacher, who arranged this meeting and prepared the students with background information and questions for the hosts. Perhaps we have some future radio engineers, producers and on-air talent in the SLS Class of 2019.
