WQSI (95.9 FM, "FM Talk 95.9") is an American radio station broadcasting a News/Talk format. Licensed to Tuskegee, Alabama, the station serves the Auburn, Alabama, area.[1] The station is currently owned by Tiger Communications, Inc.[2]

Programming[edit]

Syndicated music programming once included America's Grand Ole Opry Weekend from Westwood One.[3] Auburn didn't really take to the classic country format, and in the summer of 2014 the music gave way to a conservative news/talk format. (Taken from Alabama Broadcast Media Page) Now as a talk station notable programs include Don Imus in the Morning, The Paul Finebaum Show, The Savage Nation with Dr Michael Savage and Coast to Coast AM with George Noory.

Ownership[edit]

In November 2005, Tiger Communications Inc. (Thomas Hayley, president) reached an agreement to acquire WBIL and WQSI from H&H Communications LLC (Fred R. Hughey, member) for a reported combined sale price of $350,000.[4] The FCC approved the deal on February 13, 2006, and the transaction was consummated on April 6, 2006.[5]

Awards and honors[edit]

As a country music formatted station, WQSI on-air personality Pat Julian was nominated for a Country Music Association Award as "Small Market Broadcast Personality of the Year" in 1983.[6]
