WGDH (91.7 FM) is a non-commercial educational American radio station that serves the community of Hardwick, Vermont, United States and the surrounding areas of Lamoille, Washington and Caledonia counties. The station, launched in 2011, is owned by Goddard College and the broadcast license is held by the Goddard College Corporation.

WGDH is a hybrid college/community/public radio station, broadcasting a freeform radio format, simulcasting with its sister station WGDR (91.1 FM) in nearby Plainfield, Vermont.[1] The station began broadcasting on February 23, 2011, initially at half-power, or 550 watts. Full-power broadcasting at 1,100 watts began on March 7, 2011, six days after the Federal Communications Commission granted the station an operating license on March 1, replacing its original construction permit that was issued on April 9, 2008. The station was assigned the call sign WGDH by the FCC on October 8, 2009.[2]

A community party to celebrate the launch of the station was held on April 9, 2011, at The Hardwick Town House in Hardwick. The event was televised live by Hardwick Community Access Television.
