From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
WUWG (90.7 FM) is the radio station of the
University of West Georgia
in Carrollton, Georgia, and a part of
the GPB network. This station
is one of several in the GPB system that also produces its own
programming. Licensed to the university, the station was
transferred to GPB in 2004.
It has been on the air since 1973, originally with the callsign
WWGC, used when the school was named West Georgia College. The station
previously broadcast a very diverse college radio format,
but now broadcasts the GPB radio feed from Atlanta, with some
student specialty shows. With an omnidirectional antenna, it
covers Carroll County and somewhat
beyond with 500 watts ERP.
In August 1994, WWGC became an affiliate of Public Radio International.
This allowed the hiring of a full-time station manager, Kevin
Sanders, as well as the acquisition of new equipment such as
satellite links and DAT (digital audio tape) recording machines.
Also, the station began offering an even greater selection of
programming, and a small staff, which is a revolving door of
students, replaced annually upon the seniors' graduation. Several
part-time staff members, Mass Communications students and
university and community volunteers round out the station's
personnel. WUWG-FM airs local news and features, as well as various
popular student-produced programs.
