Columbus State University Dedicates Radio Studio to Benefactor Jimbo Martin


Radio Station Ribbon-Cutting

COLUMBUS, Ga. — Columbus State University’s Department of Communication honored James “Jimbo” Martin, owner of PMB Broadcasting and benefactor of 88.5 WCUG Cougar Radio, during a recognition ceremony today that also marked the official launch of CSU’s student-operated radio station and learning laboratory.

In recognition of his support, the home of Cougar Radio was renamed “The Martin Studios,” a surprise unveiling that concluded the celebration in front of the Carpenter Building in downtown Columbus at the corner of 9th and Broadway.


Last  year, Martin donated to CSU the license to use a full-power, noncommercial radio station at 88.5FM. CSU Department of Communication students and faculty rebranded the station as WCUG and have been dependent on PMP Broadcasting talent, expertise and experience to help the station flourish.
