History[edit]

WDNN started broadcasting in May 1989. The station was created to serve the community through locally produced programs. The staff initially consisted of Doug Smith, James Logan, Sherry Wein and Doug Jensen.

In the spring of 1993, WDNN started a daily newscast called NewsWatch 10. It was at that time, Calvin Means and three reporters joined the WDNN team. The station grew from being on one cable system to four systems that cover Northwest Georgia. WDNN then added WLFW, WRNG, and WDGA to broadcast their programs over the air.
