WUWG is West Georgia's own Campus Radio Station , serving all of Carrollton and Carroll County as well as the student body of The State University of West Georgia. Founded in February of 1973 as a ten watt station at 89.3 FM, WUWG is now 500 watts strong, and of course is found at 90.7 on the FM dial. 

In August of 1994, WWGC became an affiliate of Public Radio International. This allowed the hiring of full time station manager Kevin Sanders as well as acquisition of new equipment such as satellite links and DAT (digital audio tape) recording machines. In July 1997, WUWG became part of the Peach State Public Radio Network now called Georgia Public Radio, which allows the station an even greater selection of programming and additional equipment. WUWG is now on the air twenty four hours a day, 365 days a year, and has a staff that includes an Operations Manager (John Crosby), a Music Director (Cordrick Ramey), and a Production Manager (Emily Alexander). The staff also includes many part-time staff members, Mass Communications students and university and community volunteers (a cast of thousands!). WWGC features local news and features as well as various popular local student produced programs:
