Supertalk Mississippi, also known as The Super Talk Mississippi Radio Network or simply Supertalk, is a statewide, commercial news and talk radio network based in Jackson, Mississippi. Its flagship station is WFMN (Flora/Jackson). Supertalk Mississippi was launched in July 1997, via WFMN. It simultaneously debuted on WFMM (Sumrall/Hattiesburg). Jackson-based TeleSouth Communications now owns WRQO, as well as its non-Supertalk Mississippi sister stations, WDXO/92.9 (ESPN Radio) and WOEG/1220 (urban gospel).

The News Style[edit]

The News Mississippi crew delivers a tight and up-to-the-minute cast each hour and is broadcast on over 60 affiliate stations with a mission of immediacy, accuracy and passionate delivery.
