WAUG (750 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a Talk/Personality format. Licensed to New Hope, North Carolina, USA (a locale in the northeastern part of Raleigh), the station serves the Raleigh area. The station is currently owned by Saint Augustine's College and features programing from American Urban Radio Networks and Syndication One.[1] WAUG radio is a daytime only operation, shutting down at sunset to make way for the 50,000-watt WSB in Atlanta.

The college also runs a low-powered TV station, WAUG-LP (channel 68). WAUG-LP is carried by Time Warner Cable on digital cable channel 168 in Raleigh.

History[edit]

WAUG "Power 750" began broadcasting in 1987 from the campus of Saint Augustine's University. In October 2006, the station switched primarily to a talk format aimed at the black community. Shows include the nationally syndicated News One Now with Roland Martin, Keepin' It Real with Al Sharpton and Biz Talk with Josh Smith. The station also carries football games from the Washington Redskins as well as St. Augustine's University Sports including the CIAA Basketball Tournament. The station is also the flagship for From The Press Box To The Press Row, a sports talk show focused on Black college sports which is heard on syndicated stations through the mid-Atlantic region from Pennsylvania to Georgia.[2]
