WEGG (710 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a traditional Gospel music format.[1] Licensed to Rose Hill, North Carolina, USA. The station is currently owned by Conner Media Corporation.

WEGG was founded by Jeffrey Barnes Wilson in the 1970s. It started out as a country station and then a mix of country and southern gospel. The station eventually became all gospel. The call letters were intended to reflect the poultry industry which is next door to the radio station. Mr. Wilson would call it The "W"onderful "EGG".

Charlie Robinson hosted a gospel music program called "All Gospel For All People" and coined the call letters as standing for WEGG "Where Everyone Glorifies God".

WEGG operates on 710 AM - a clear channel. One of the liners for the station was "Clear Channel Radio 71".

The station carried ABC News as well as The North Carolina News Network. James Kenan High School Football and Wake Forest Sports were part of the programming as well.

Thru The Bible Radio with Dr. J. Vernon McGee was part of the programming throughout Wilsons ownership of the station. Many local churches aired their ministries on the station as well.

Jeffrey Barnes Wilson died in the late 1990s.
