It all started when…

In 2012, the Academy of Art University only had one sound booth and not much else. Matty Staudt, AAU’s newest COM professor wanted to change that, creating a tiered program that introduced students to radio.

By their third class, they were producing their own shows and soon after, began managing the day-to-day operations of the station.

Today, Urban Knights Radio is heard around the world and is iHeartRadio’s top college radio station.

“BACON” Jackson Alpert

Hello, my name is Jackson Alpert but please call me Bacon. I am a student at the Academy of Arts University studying to do what I'm doing now. Radio. I've been so interested in the business ever since my first course, and now with my show Bacon by the Bay (8-9 am Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) I'm ready to take this road as far out as possible. Be sure to Keep it Krispy, Make it Sizzle, and keep listening to Urban Knights Radio the sound of artists.

COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR ~ Joe Stone

Hello, my name is Joe, and I major in Communications and Media Technology (bonus points if you just sang that). I’m an Army veteran now pursuing a career in multimedia communications. I manage the station’s website and social media (the first online student with a management position with UKR - #NOICE). I love being on the Urban Knights Radio team and am super excited about the direction that the station is heading.

On top of my other duties, I also produce and host “90s or Nuthin” - a music show all about the 90s. You know, the greatest era of music of all time.

Stormy Montana

My name is Stormy Montana - I am an online Music Production and Sound Design major here at the Academy of Art University. I am the creator and host of the UKR featured show "In The Round." I based my show around the concept of a Writer's Round style live show, which is a common treat around Nashville, TN. Over my years as an artist and writer myself, I have been blessed to meet, work with, learn about, and on happy occasions - befriend so many extraordinarily talented and sometimes unrecognized writers and artists. Having the opportunity to highlight THEM and introduce listeners to their work, and to be able to tell their stories about their careers and their songs is a treat. I hope to be able to continue this show, possibly morph it into a consistent Podcast one day. I completed my BFA in Dec. 2018 and have returned to start my MFA, and I have loved everything that AAU has given me the opportunity to be a part of through the course of acquiring my education. I cannot wait to see what the future holds!
