Tiger Communications is proud to announce that effective on May 7, AM-1230 WAUD, will make the switch over to SB Nation Radio. This is one of the many exciting changes in line for the longest running sports station in Auburn.
SB Nation offers a new, refreshing sports outlook with an actual variety for all listeners. “The people of Lee County asked for a variety. They’re tired of the same old screaming sports hosts that flip flop from one national brand to another. Stale gimmicks and national networks that only give you what they deem as newsworthy have run their course. The “supposed” major sports networks only use their radio outlets to promote what’s on their TV schedule. There is something very hollow about that approach,” said WAUD Program Director Bill Bailey. “SB Nation Radio offers shows on all of the major sports but also has a great new shows for car enthusiasts, outdoors and fishing shows like BassMaster Radio, wrestling programs, a couple of golf shows and a show that focuses on talking about the latest craze, E-Sports.”.
AM-1230, WAUD will remain as the area’s official station for the Atlanta Braves in Lee County and offer a local show in the morning and regional programming like Southern Sports Today with Chuck Oliver during the mid-day. All of this plus the fact that Tiger Communications is the area’s local outlet for Auburn Athletics makes this a truly exciting time on the plains for sports enthusiasts of all ages.
