- An original
construction permit was awarded to Hobson City Broadcasting Company
in May of 1987 for a daytime-only AM operation on 1120 kHz, with
just 500 watts. The company ran into numerous troubles trying
to get the station on the air, and did not launch until the spring
of 1991. Originally, it was assigned the WHOX calls, then
acquired the WJOK calls in 1988, before finally getting the current
WHOG calls in 1990.
From the beginning, the station has an Urban Contemporary format.
The station was awarded a permit for an FM translator companion
signal in October 2018.
