Troy University Public Radio is a network of public radio stations based in Troy, Alabama, USA that serve southeastern Alabama and parts of western Georgia and northwestern Florida with classical music, folk music, and jazz programs, as well as news and feature programs from the National Public Radio, Public Radio International, and American Public Media networks. The stations are licensed to Troy University, on whose main campus the studios are located.

Three stations comprise the network:
*WTSU 89.9--Troy/Montgomery (flagship). Signal reaches a region extending from Montgomery to the state line of Florida.
*WRWA 88.7--Dothan. Signal covers the southeastern corner of the state, extending eastward into the southwestern tip of Georgia and southward into the Florida panhandle.
*WTJB 91.7--Columbus, Georgia/Phenix City. Signal reaches a region extending about 30 miles in both directions from the Chattahoochee River.


WTSU-FM started broadcasting in 1978 as the state's third public radio station (the callsign stands for the university's name then, "Troy State University," a part of the Alabama higher education system), and the first south of Birmingham. The station would expand into nearby territories in the 1980s, adding the frequencies in Columbus and, later, Dothan.

The public radio network is one component of the Troy University Department of Radio and Television; the other is "Trojanvision", a student-operated television channel seen on several cable systems throughout southeastern Alabama. Both entities enlist students from the school of journalism as staffers.
