Local High School Football on WEPG / WSDQ and How to Listen Live

Football season is here and if you’re following your favorite local high school football team here in the Sequatchie Valley, there’s no doubt you’ll want to keep up with them for every game and all season long as great things are expected from all of our local teams and players this season.

Add to that several strategic games that will be played on the road for our local teams, which can limit some fans from attending for various reasons.

Following a tradition of over 50 years for WEPG and at least 30 years for WSDQ, both stations will be carrying local high school games from their respective area teams again this season along with the Nickajack Radio Network, which produces, distributes, and coordinates broadcasts for multiple local teams each season.

WEPG (The River 104.9)  has long been the home for live on-air coverage of the South Pittsburg Pirates, and will be bringing you all of their games — home and away for the entire regular season and playoffs. Sean Dunwoody and Jeremy Jackson will bring the play-by-play action to you over the air and on multiple digital/streaming platforms with the help of Pirates Radio producer Travis Hickman.

The Marion County Warriors can also be heard on WEPG, a tradition continued now for almost the same number of years as the Pirates, with legendary “Voice of the Warriors,” Dave Daffron taking to the mic as he has done for the past 40 or more years. Joining Dave behind the mic this season is MCHS alumni Brian Gossett, who will be bringing his perspective to the broadcasts now. They are joined for in-game scoreboard updates by producer Logan Carmichael back at the Warriors Radio studio.   The games are streamed live on the station’s website on Friday nights and all regular season and playoff games will be covered.

The Whitwell Tigers can also be heard through WEPG’s website this season. WEPG has carried Tigers Football several times throughout the years, dating back to the `1980s, but has been the consistent radio home for the team now since 2019. This year former owner and publisher of Marion County Newspapers, David Riley, will be stepping into the booth to bring you live coverage along with producer, Tommy Strong, back in the Tigers Radio studio.

Sequatchie County Indians Football has been on Dunlap’s WSDQ (Country Roads 93.3 FM) for most of the radio station’s existence.  In the early years WSDQ was forced to play the games back on a taped-delay on Saturday mornings due to being a daytime-only AM radio station,  however with the addition of FM several years ago, they can now offer live coverage on-air on Friday nights at 93.3 FM and on through streaming.  Randall Cunningham and his broadcast team will be bringing the play-by-play to the radio with producer Steven Anunziato taking care of things back in the Indians Radio Studio.
