Classical 90.5 WSMC

During the next few weeks, we will be upgrading our 100,000-watt transmitter to a custom-built model with digital capabilities. This upgrade will ensure an even more reliable signal strength for our audience and will increase your overall listening experience. While we undergo this process, certain areas will notice a decrease in signal strength, especially in north Georgia. We are working as quickly as possible to complete the process so that you can continue to enjoy the music you love. If you are in an affected listening area, remember that WSMC may be accessed online at, on our mobile apps, and by telling Amazon Alexa to "play WSMC". If you have any questions regarding how to access our free streams, please call 423.236.2905 or email
