 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 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 , 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.

WSB Radio can also be heard via streaming at wsbradio.com, the WSB Radio App from Google Play or the iTunes App Store, and smart speaker devices such as Amazon Echo and Google Home.

Over the last two days, August 21, 22, while listening to 95.5 in Banks, Hall and Athen-Clarke Country Counties, it is half static and half clarity…very poor reception.

Those are not the target market. It’s unfortunate, but they need to put the transmitter in the middle of the market they are targeting. It’s a good move. Getting the signal out to Athens during the day is a heavy lift… can’t deny physics. 🙂

Besides being boring, I find WSB lost its power when Neil retired. There are many good talk DJ’s better than WSB’s childish line-up and fake paid commercials posing as programing. PM Eric is O.K. Morning Eric is Juvenile and his support staff are Loons.
