Our mission at Jasper High School, and more specifically the media department is to provide students with a real-world educational experience of different mediums. This includes but is not limited to radio, television, and online media. We strive to give students a creative outlet while also practicing real-world media techniques they can use outside the school. Overall, we also want to provide students, their parents, alumni, and community members with news and information about what is going on at JHS and other area schools. This includes coverage of sports, clubs, student events, and any other news or activities that matter to the students, faculty, and parents of Jasper High School or the community of Dubois County.
Our Programming for “The Curve,” is almost all student ran. A large amount of music is selected and played by the students in our Radio/TV classes. It can be a somewhat eclectic mix because of the wide variety of taste in each student. With that being said, we try to focus on an alternative and independent format, otherwise known as AAA. Students have weekly shifts broadcasting during school ‘prime hours’ such as before/after school and throughout the day. This is not only entertaining for students driving to and from school, but also for parents, faculty, and the community looking for daily information.
Students will also produce a variety of original recorded shows and segments that are both entertaining and informative.
WJPR-FM is a Class A Non-Commercial radio station that broadcasts from Jasper High School. Playing an eclectic mix of ‘Adult Album Alternative’ and other student picked music, along with daily school and community news. 91.7 ‘The Curve’ has a 2,600 watt signal that can reach all of Dubois County and beyond, with our best coverage being in the cities of Jasper, Dubois, and Huntingburg. Underwriting and Sponsorship opportunities are open to businesses and individuals that want to show their support in the growing media programs at JHS & PVCTE
