Who we are
UAB Student Media is the home of the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s student-run media outlets. They include Kaleidoscope, an award-winning weekly newspaper; Blaze Radio, our 24-hour online radio station live on the Live365 app; Aura, a much-heralded literary arts magazine and UABtv, original, web-based video programming. UAB students operate all media. The articles, posts, newscasts and opinions are solely those of its student writers, producers, editors, deejays, etc. and do not reflect that of the university, its administrators or the Student Media advisors.
Our mission is to be a renowned media organization that provides students with co-curricular experiences that will empower them to be great leaders, communicators and storytellers.
