This daytimer signed on in May 1982 as WIUA under the ownership of Bobby W. Knight.  The calls changed to WXBK in April of 1982. It's unclear what the format was in the beginning, by the time the calls became WXBK, the station was broadcasting a Christian music and talk format.   In 1999, King died and the station went up for sale.  It came into the ownership of MVB, Inc. in 2001. The calls changed to WWGC in April of 2002.  MVB, Inc. sold the station to Quality Properties, LLC, in December 2006.  Quality Properties, LLC is operated by the Jeff Beck Media Group, who run several east Alabama stations.  The station acquired a translator in the fall of 2015 from WAY-FM and got a permit to move it from Mountain View to Albertville, but the permit was cancelled in October of 2015 and never got built out.
