WFGI (940 AM) is an American radio station broadcasting at a daytime power of 250 watts, and a nighttime power of five watts. The station is licensed to Keymarket Licenses, LLC and serves the area around Charleroi, Pennsylvania, south of Pittsburgh.

For many of its years, this station was known as WESA-AM. The station debuted in 1947, and for much of its existence, operated as a full-service station serving the Mon-Yough valley, which comprises communities along the Monongahela and Youghiogheny Rivers.

WESA was joined by an FM station, WESA-FM, which signed on July 10, 1967. Both stations simulcast one another part of the day until about 1981, when the first round of FCC deregulation came about, eliminating the 50/50 rule mandating that AM/FM combo operators originate separate programming for at least half of the broadcast day. Both stations then became 100 percent simulcast.

The two stations were sold in May 1985 to Farr Communications, which owned the station until 1999, when the station was sold to Keymarket Communications, for $1.3 million. Keymarket immediately changed the station's format to its popular "Froggy" country music format, and then petitioned the FCC to change the FM station's (now known as WOGI) city of license from Charleroi to Duquesne, which would allow the station to move its signal closer to Pittsburgh.

WFGI Today

WFGI today operates as a simulcast outlet of WOGI.
