Awards & Winners


WSB — branded AM 750 and 95.5 FM News/Talk WSB — is a commercial radio station licensed to Atlanta, Georgia broadcasting a news/talk format. The station transmits with 50,000 watts of nondirectional power day and night, enjoying clear-channel status on its broadcast frequency according to the U.S. Federal Communications Commission and North American Radio Broadcasting Agreement signatories with Canada and Mexico; this enables WSB to be heard across a wide coverage area during nighttime hours. It uses the slogan "Atlanta's news, weather, traffic, and Georgia Bulldogs station." The station is owned by, and is the AM flagship station for Cox Radio. WSB AM is the sister station to WSBB-FM 95.5, WSB-FM, WALR-FM, WSRV FM, WSB-TV 39, and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper in metro Atlanta, all owned by Cox. Although WSB is licensed for using the technology, it is not currently broadcasting in HD Radio. The digital radio system has apparently been turned off due to listener complaints of RF interference. WSB programming has been simulcast on sister FM station WSBB-FM 95.5 since August 2010.
