WPGX is the Fox-affiliated television station in Panama City, Florida. It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on VHF channel 9 (or virtual channel 28.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter on Blue Springs Road, in unincorporated Bay County, northwest of Youngstown. The station can also be seen on Comcast and WOW! channel 8 as well as Mediacom channel 10 (with HD on Comcast digital channel 434, Mediacom digital channel 810, and WOW! digital channel 905). Owned by Raycom Media, WPGX has studios on West 23rd Street/Alternate SR 390/SR 368 in Panama City. Syndicated programming on the station includes Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, Judge Judy, and The People's Court among others.
Originally, WPGX-DT2 was an affiliate of The Tube but the 24-hour music video network was dropped after going dark in 2007. In its place, the station was considering to offer This TV but decided not to in the end. WBIF had been carrying the 24-hour movie network but dropped the programing service after becoming owned by Daystar. In July 2010, ABC affiliate WMBB broadcast This TV on their second digital subchannel and later changed to Me TV as of August, 2013.

The station began operations in May 1988 and aired an analog signal on UHF channel 28. Its previous owner, Waitt Media, sold WPGX to Raycom in 2003. For the digital transition in 2009, the station remained on its pre-transition channel number.   At one point under Raycom Media ownership, WPGX previously maintained facilities (known as the "Fox Television Center") on Luverne Avenue in a building shared with a Suntrust Bank branch. In May 2010, it launched a website for the first time under Raycom's control.
In January 2010, local ABC outlet WMBB (owned by the Hoak Media Corporation) began producing local weather cut-ins for this station through an arrangement. Although there was speculation this agreement would eventually be expanded into a prime time newscast at 9, these plans never came to fruition. The weather segments ceased airing at some point and this Fox affiliate now features weather forecasts produced in advance by WeatherVision, normally featuring Meteorologist Brandon Bouché. 
WPGX also currently broadcasts a local talk/public affairs show that airs in the weeknight time slot after Fox prime time programming. The thirty minute program at 9 p.m., known as News View, is hosted by former United States Air Force Lieutenant colonel Don Arias. The program is taped in advance and features topics that tend to be presented from a conservative perspective (owing to the South's traditional conservative values).
