WSWI (820 AM, 90.7 FM HD2 and 95.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an Alternative format. Licensed to Evansville, Indiana, United States, the station serves the Evansville area. The station is currently owned by University of Southern Indiana Board of Trustees and features programming from AP Radio.[1]


WSWI started life as WIKY, which began broadcasting in August 1947 on 820 kHz with 250 watts of power.[2] It was sold to the University of Southern Indiana when WIKY became an FM station[citation needed].

WSWI on FM[edit]

In 2010, WSWI and WPSR, a local, non-profit station like that of WSWI, teamed up to provide The Edge Radio with an FM signal on HD2. Because of the team up, WSWI can now be heard on AM 820 and 90.7 FM HD2. However, in order to listen to The Edge Radio on HD2, an HD radio must be purchased.

On June 27, 2016 WSWI began simulcasting on FM translator W239CI 95.7 FM Evansville, rebranding as "95.7 The Edge".[3]


The Edge Radio currently produces a morning show titled, "The Way Too Early in the Morning Show" from 7-9AM central time with host Rizzo. Previous hosts Andrew Bolin and Nino Orsby were both awarded "Best Radio Personalities" for 2008 and 2009 by the Indiana Association of School Broadcasters.

Each weekday morning, The Edge presents local, state, national, and international news at 8:00 and 9:00 AM.

WSWI sports[edit]

The Edge Radio produces a morning sportscast every weekday at 8:30AM Central Time during the morning show. Sports director Jevin Redman performs with various other sports reporters throughout the week.
