The new 98.3 FOX FM transmission tower is strategically located at a high point about six miles southeast of Sylacauga in Coosa County, Ala. — about 16 miles northwest of Alexander City-Lake Martin, 25 miles south of Talladega, 45 miles southeast of Birmingham, and 55 miles north of Montgomery. Our amazing omnidirectional signal reaches into parts of more than 18 counties.
Originally licensed in Sylacauga, WFXO-FM first signed on as WMLS-FM in Dec. 1959 and moved to Ashland in 2004. On July 19, 2016, the Federal Communications Commission approved Marble City Media LLC’s purchase of WFXO-FM from Williams Communications Inc., and the transfer was completed on Aug. 1, 2016. On Oct. 24, 2016, the FCC approved the station’s relocation back to the greater Sylacauga area with a license in Stewartville. The station ceased operation in Ashland on Nov. 24, 2016, and began broadcasting from the Sylacauga area on Dec. 4.
Marble City Media LLC also owns and operates stations primarily serving Sylacauga-Childersburg-Talladega and Alexander City-Dadeville-Lake Martin-Wetumpka-Montgomery and has a construction permit to build a new FM station to serve the Auburn-Opelika area. The addition of WFXO-FM significantly expands service in the Sylacauga and Lake Martin areas, as well as the Talladega-Lincoln area to the north and into the Birmingham-Hoover area to the northwest.
We exist to serve the public interest and are working hard to be relevant, reliable, innovative, responsible, and visible — and to inform, educate, and entertain.
