WLAQ (1410 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a News Talk Information format. Licensed to Rome, Georgia, USA, the station serves the Rome GA area. The station is currently owned by Cripple Creek Broadcasting Company and features programing from CBS Radio.[1]

WLAQ currently provides a locally produced morning news/talk/sports program hosted by News Director, Elizabeth Davis, as well as a great deal of local varsity sports coverage. WLAQ and its sister station WATG 95.7 FM The Ridge are flagship stations for coverage of the Rome Braves, Class A affiliate of the major league Atlanta Braves. Son of legendary Braves voice Skip Caray, Josh Caray, provided the play-by-play for the 2007 and 2008 seasons, now handled by Rome native Ben Poplin.
