WSWI on FM
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, a person must first buy an HD radio, which sell for a wide range of prices.
On June 27, 2016 WSWI began simulcasting on FM translator W239CI 95.7 FM Evansville, rebranding as "95.7 The Edge".
