WNGM first broadcast on April 18, 1989. The station aired original programming, such as Mornings with Meg and Athens Community Forum; syndicated programming, especially religious shows; and reruns of series and films. Whitehead Media purchased the station, 1995-1996. Soon thereafter, in 1998, U. S. A. Broadcasting (no longer extant, but related to the U. S. A. Networks company) purchased the station. At some point toward the end of the decade, the station's call letters changed to WHOT. In 2001-2002, the station changed hands again, becoming an affiliate of Univision and taking on its current call letters, WUVG.
