WJOX-FM "Your Sports Authority" is a sports talk radio station in Birmingham at frequency FM 94.5.

The station debuted in November 2006 as a simulcast of the existing WJOX AM 690 on the FM 100.5 frequency formerly occupied by WRAX-FM. Both stations are owned by Cumulus Communications.


On January 8, 2007 WJOX-AM changed its call letters to WSPZ and split its programming from WJOX, then known as "The Sports Monster". The same month talk-show host Paul Finebaum moved his call-in show to WJOX, following the conclusion of his contract with WERC-AM.

In July 2008, WJOX-FM began simulcasting on FM 100.5 and FM 94.5, moving to the more powerful 94.5 frequency exclusively later that month. On January 2, 2013 the station became an affiliate of the CBS Sports Radio network. Finebaum left when his contract expired later that month.

In June 2021 the four personalities who appeared as the "JOX Roundtable" since 2010 parted ways with the station.
