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.


Some notable former DJs at the station include Ryan Cameron, Rhubarb Jones, Rob Parker, Randall Davidson, Jonathan Dorsey, Lisa Lang, Kevin Sanders, Robert Ray, Audra Schwarz, Trevor Head, Drew Fountain, Bubba Petty, Mike Bland, Sean Gilbert, Lacey Smith, Brooks Robinson, Errol Crane, John Crosby, Tommy Butler, Jerry Edwards, Bryan Hubbard, Sam Mills, Teri Lamprey, Singin' Steve Sedberry and Emily Alexander.
