WUGA Frequency Change

17 March 2017

Changes taking place this weekend will affect some WUGA listeners. Georgia Public broadcasting will change the station's translator, or secondary channel from 97.9 FM to 94.5 FM.

This change will increase broadcast power to the service area. WUGA’s primary signal, 91.7 will not be affected by this upgrade. The move will ultimately increase the Athens population service from 70,691 listeners to 117,565 listeners.

WUGA began broadcasts on the campus of the University of Georgia in August 1987 and is currently celebrating 30 years of service as an NPR affiliate through a partnership with GPB.

Once again, WUGA will switch from 97.9 to 94.5 effective Sunday evening, March 19th.
