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.
