WSB Radio Moves 95.5 FM Transmitter to East Atlanta andChanges Name and Positioning Statement to 95.5 WSB Atlanta’s News & Talk
ATLANTA – Aug. 20, 2019 – Cox Media Group Atlanta’s WSB Radio (WSB-AM/WSBB-FM) has moved its 95.5 FM transmitter and antenna from Flowery Branch to East Atlanta and changed its official name and positioning statement to 95.5 WSB Atlanta’s News & Talk.
The move brings a stronger signal and better sound quality to residents in counties on the south, west and northwest side of metro Atlanta, including Henry, Paulding, Cobb, Bartow, Coweta, Cherokee and Douglas.
“With the new tower location, at least one million more people in Atlanta will now be able to listen to 95.5 WSB without static, loud and clear, both at home and at work,” says Pete Spriggs, WSB Radio’s director of branding and programming. “Office buildings in downtown and midtown Atlanta, Buckhead, Cumberland and Perimeter will now be able to listen to 95.5 on an FM radio and hear our news and talk with a strong signal.”
WSB Radio’s local news, traffic and weather coverage — along with local talk shows featuring Eric Von Haessler, Mark Arum, Erick Erickson and Clark Howard — will continue to air on the 750 AM dial, which has a 97-year broadcast history and is one of the most historic radio signals in the nation, reaching up to 30 states at night and serving as a major source of news and information for the entire Southeast for decades.
