WIXV (95.5 FM, "I-95") is a rock formatted radio station targeted to Savannah, Georgia, United States. It is owned by Cumulus Broadcasting. Its studios are located on Television Circle in Savannah and utilizes a transmitter located west of the city in unincorporated Chatham County. The station takes its I-95 branding from Interstate 95, which runs through the Savannah area, only skirting city proper on the west. The station started as in 1972 as WSGF (95SGF), a Top 40-leaning adult contemporary station. The station was highly successful against other competitors such as 1400 AM and Z102. By 1983, seeing the gap left by Wave 97 when they dropped album rock earlier that year, WSGF had become WIXV and added more hard rock to the playlist.In 1986 I-95 became Savannah's full-time rock station. Since then WIXV has been a Hybrid Mix of Classic and Newer rock. WIXV featured John Boy and Billy in the mornings for 15 years until they switched to the Bob and Tom show in January 2014. The station's program director is Don Scott, who moved from Miami to Savannah to help make WIXV #1 for Rock. Don worked for legendary rock stations in Ft Lauderdale & Miami before coming to Savannah. WIXV/I-95 has a 100kW signal that stretches up through South Carolina to the north and past Brunswick to the south. WIXV was the first to feature live bands on the St. Patrick's day floats, and to have the annual Rock Babe Calendar and Summer Concert series which have since become benchmarks for this Heritage Station. Lyndsey Marie joined the station in January 2015 and adds to the line up which includes....Bob & Tom Mornings 6-10am....Lyndsey Marie: Midday's 10-2pm...Don Scott: Afternoons 2-7pm and K.C.: Nights 7-10pm Former personalities In 2005-2006 the night DJ was named "Caveman".[1] Luke Walker 6-10pm 2006-2009 Jay Sinclair: 2007-2112 Mike Miller: 2012-2014
