WNGH-FM (98.9 FM) is an NPR-member radio station (via its radio network), licensed to Chatsworth, Georgia, USA. The station is currently owned by Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB), which the station simulcasts all radio programming from. It transmits from atop a mountain in the west-southwest part of Fort Mountain State Park (not Fort Mountain itself), having moved in May 2008 to be with WNGH-TV 18, also a GPB station.

Sale to GPB

On December 21, 2007, North Georgia Radio Group entered into an agreement to sell the station, then known as WQMT, to The Foundation For Public Broadcasting In Georgia, Inc., which shares the same street address as GPB headquarters in Atlanta.[2] The sale was approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on April 9, 2008.[3] Pending the sale, GPB reserved the call sign WNGH-FM for the station, to be assigned upon consummation.[4] GPB also chose to change the callsign of WCLP-TV 18 to WNGH-TV after 40 years, even though WCLP-FM was available for the new radio station. The station switched from its previous classic country format (as "Georgia 99") to GPB on January 2, 2008, and later moved to the WNGH-TV tower around May 2008.
