St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School’s radio station is now streaming on the web in addition to broadcasting to a 10-mile radius beyond the SAS campus. FM 103.1, WMTN-LP, "The Mountain" provides solid gold hits programming in a non-commercial, public radio format.
The station is the gift of Bud Walters a 1959 graduate of the Sewanee Military Academy and a former SAS Trustee. Bud and his suppliers donate most of the station's equipment and technical assistance. The station had its first broadcast on April 24, 2004.
By helping to provide this opportunity at St. Andrew's-Sewanee students, it is Bud's hope to spark student interest in the broadcast field.
In the fall, station manager Lizzie Duncan plans to expand the station’s programming to original music and talk shows recorded by SAS students.
