WGGC (95.1 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Country music format. It is licensed to Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA, and serves the Bowling Green area of south-central and west-central Kentucky. The station is currently owned by Heritage Communications, Inc. [2]

Its transmitter is located near Meador, Kentucky in northern Allen County on Kentucky Route 101 near the Warren/Allen County line. Its broadcasting studio is located on the US 31W Bypass in Bowling Green.

History[edit]

The station went on the air on June 15, 1989. To date, this station never changed its callsign, nor has it ever changed its programming format. [3] Until 2010, the station was branded as “95.1 WGGC.” It began branding itself “Goober 95.1” in late 2010.

Programming and format[edit]

WGGC broadcasts a country music format, therefore competing with three other country formats in the same market: WBVR-FM 96.7, WHHT 103.7, and Glasgow-based WLYE-FM 94.1 for ratings. WGGC also competes with WSM AM 650 and WSM-FM 95.5 in Nashville and WBKR 92.5 in Owensboro for viewing allegiances due to Bowling Green’s close proximity to both nearby cities. In fact, both cities can pick up grade C coverage of the station thanks to WGGC’s 100,000 watts of power. [4]

In addition to country music, WGGC also broadcasts Kentucky Wildcats football and men’s basketball games by the UK IMG Sports Radio Network.

WGGC’s morning show, “The Goober Club,” airs from 6 to 9 a.m. CT. It features a daily joke and the FleaBay International show, featuring listener-submitted classified ads featured on the website.
