WGUN (950 [1]

It is the oldest station in the city. Although the original WGOV call letters are sometimes said to have stood for "Good Old Valdosta", the station name actually derived from its founder,

With the inauguration of the Jack the Bellboy program in 1948 with deejay Ben Porter, WGOV was one of the first stations in the country to broadcast rhythm and blues.

On January 25, 2013, the station changed its call sign to WGUN, which had been used by the co-owned station in Decatur (Atlanta) on 1010 kHz.

On February 1, 2014 WGUN changed their format from regional Mexican to urban adult contemporary.
