Interested in developing your design skills? No experience required! Check out @wrekdesigncollective, a multimodal creative space in the station focusing on experimental print and design. From self-taught screen-printing to zine-making to creative coding, meshing raw DIY with modern software to create wacky works is their goal. Their inspo?—experimental club/rave posters, archival accounts, brutalist websites, anything crazy.

WREK 91.1 FM

WREK is the entirely student managed, operated and engineered radio station at Georgia Tech. We broadcast 24/7 from the GT Student Center on 91.1 FM with 100,000 watts throughout Atlanta in addition to streaming online with a 14-day archive. WREK has been broadcasting since March 25th, 1968. Since then, names, faces, and clothing fashions may have changed, but the station-wide philosophy of providing diverse, quality programming to the Atlanta area and the world at large has remained unwavering.

The Sound

WREK’s programming consists of dozens of specialty shows produced in-house, syndicated programming, public affairs broadcasting, and broadly defined ‘formats.’WREK broadcasts 24 hours a day, every day and maintains a diverse format including atmospherics, rock, ska, bluegrass, pop, new wave, grunge, classic rock, reggae, dub, classical, Tech Sports, symphonic, jazz, hip-hop, blues, folk, world musics, experimental, electronic, synthesized, industrial, spoken word, zydeco, radio drama, soul, funk, public affairs, Joltin Jackets Baseball, ambient, TechNews, punk, Georgia Tech Women’s Basketball, and a whole universe more! Our programming consists of dozens of specialty shows produced in-house, syndicated programming, public affairs broadcasting, and broadly defined ‘formats.’


  • Almost fifty WREK-hours per week feature WREK specialty shows.

  • Around five hours come from syndicated sources.

  • The other hundred or so hours each week are formats including “The Classics” in the early morning; “Just Jazz” in the late morning; “Blue Plate Special” in the early afternoon, featuring a wide assortment of music from all over the planet; “Rock, Rhythm, & Roll” during the rest of the afternoon; “Atmospherics” for late night ambience; the wildly diverse “Overnight Alternatives;” and the musical globetrotting of “Weekend Cornucopia.”
  • The Signal

    WREK’s signal covers the entire metropolitan Atlanta area. At 100,000 watts, it dwarfs other similar non-commercial stations around the country, which are typically running at powers on the order of 100 to 1500 watts. Pictured below is a coverage map of 91.1 FM. The blue contour represents our 60 dBu contour interference-free coverage area according to the Federal Communications Commission. Our primary service area includes the communities of Atlanta, Decatur, Smyrna, Marietta, East Point, College Park, Lilburn, Kennesaw, Douglasville, Duluth, Woodstock, Dallas, Snellville, Lawrenceville, Roswell, Alpharetta, Lithia Springs, Conyers, Stockbridge, Union City, Fayetteville, Riverdale, Forest Park, McDonough, Villa Rica, and Peachtree City. We can be received in all or part of Fulton, DeKalb, Cobb, Gwinnett, Douglas, Clayton, Rockdale, Bartow, Cherokee, Forsyth, Paulding, Carroll, Fayette, Henry, Newton, Walton, and Coweta counties, which have a combined population of over 4.3 million (2003 Census estimate).

    Since 1993, WREK has also been transmitting worldwide on the Internet, first using home-grown software, then moving to the then popular (but proprietary) RealAudio format, and finally moving to the better MP3 format in early 2001. We offer both low and high bitrate MP3 streams, and a weeklong archive of our programming is available. Since fall 2003, WREK has been available on campus televisions as the audio of the TV guide channel on the Georgia Tech Cable Network.
