WIFO-FM (105.5 FM) is Jesup's FM heritage station, broadcasting a wide variety of programming, including mornings with Butch Hubbard, Local News with Bob Morgan, Local Sports; The only FM Atlanta Braves affiliate for Baxley, Hinesville, Jesup, Waycross, Brunswick, and Camden County; Since 1971 the oldest continuous FM Braves Affiliate. WIFO also covers professional and college sports, as well as country music and the True Oldies Channel weekends.[1] Licensed to Jesup, Georgia, USA; The station is currently owned by Jesup Broadcasting Corp.[2]

A fire December 7, 2005,[3] destroyed the original studios. New permanent facilities located at the original site went online June 24, 2006. Since then, sister station WLOP has noticed a resurgence in listeners, due in part to Fox Sports Radio, and the addition of relevant local sports programming 24/7, including WCHS Softball on WLOP.
