About

BlazeRadio is dedicated to providing quality music, news, sports coverage, and unique programming to the online community 24/7/365 – all commercial free.

BlazeRadio is the official student-operated radio station at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, a nationally-ranked teaching and research university, offering a full range of academic programs including arts and humanities, business, education, engineering, and health related professions. UAB (and BlazeRadio) is located in Birmingham, Alabama. Support for BlazeRadio is provided by the Office of Student Media.

BlazeRadio is non-profit and therefore we cannot “sell ad space” nor will we buy ad space on any other network.

Our studio is located inside the Office of Student Media in the PITA Stop Building and is managed by the Student Affairs’ Technology Department.
