WVIG (95.9 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a classic country music format. Licensed to Seelyville, Indiana, United States, the station serves the Terre Haute area. The station is currently owned by David Crooks, through licensee DLC Media, Inc.[1]

History[edit]

The station went on the air as WAGD on 1993-12-17. On 1994-05-02, the station changed its call sign to WTHC, on 1999-12-01 to WWSY, on 2012-06-12 to WXXR, on 2014-05-26 to WDKE, and on 2017-01-30 to the current WVIG.[2]

In May 2014, the website 959DukeFM.com was registered, and WXXR flipped to '90s-based Classic Country as 95.9 Duke-FM shortly after Noon on the 23rd. A Facebook page has been registered for the station, promoting that Duke-FM "Plays The Legends Of Country". On May 26, WXXR changed their call letters to WDKE, to go with the "Duke FM" branding.

On January 30, 2017, WDKE changed their call letters to WVIG and rebranded as "95.9 The Legend".[3] This change co-incided with the consummation of DLC Media's acquisition of WVIG from Midwest Communications.
