FOXSports recently named Tiger Communications of Auburn the exclusive Auburn University Sports Lee County affiliate. The Tiger 93.9 FM will broadcast Auburn University football, women’s and men’s basketball, baseball, and softball over Lee County’s most powerful signal. The Tiger 93.9 FM has dedicated its 25,000 watts of superior signal to FOXSports and Auburn athletics. This coverage will include daily recaps of all Auburn University sports, Tiger Talk, The Coach Flo Show, and The Tiger’s own daily sports show, SportsCall.
While Tiger Communications will be the “official” affiliate in Lee County, it will also provide quality coverage in all, or portions, of the following counties: Barbour, Bullock, Chambers, Elmore, Macon, Montgomery, Pike, Russell, and Tallapoosa. The coverage will potentially reach over 500,000 people in Alabama.
“We are thrilled to provide the Auburn University Athletics program and FOXSports with the coverage they deserve for their sports broadcasts. I would particularly like to thank Nick Cartan, Chris Davis, and Rod Bramblett with FOXSports and Auburn University Athletic Directors Jay Jacobs and David Housel for their past and future commitment to excellence for all Auburn Athletics. Auburn fans and its athletes deserve this type of coverage. Tiger Communications and I would like to echo the Auburn Creed in broadcasting, ‘I believe in Auburn and love it,’ ” said Tom Hayley, President of Tiger Communications.
