WNPT-FM in Tuscaloosa will now serve a greater portion of West Alabama with a second signal for the Home of Alabama Sports. 

Starting today, Tide 102.9 FM will simulcast on 100.9 FM to provide a radio broadcast that's can be picked up with less interference by more people around Tuscaloosa and Northport.

While you're driving around the University of Alabama campus and surrounding areas this week, make sure you give 100.9 FM a try to see if it will give you a cleaner sound in your car. The new signal should benefit the downtown area and communities just north of the Black Warrior River the most.

All of the great local programming and comprehensive coverage of Crimson Tide sports will continue. Remember that you can also take us with you wherever you cheer on Alabama by downloading the radioPup app for your mobile device.
