WCGA (1100 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a news/talk format. Licensed to Woodbine, Georgia, United States, the station serves the Brunswick, Georgia/Fernandina Beach, Florida area. The station is owned by Cox Broadcast Group, Inc. (unrelated to the larger Cox Media Group or Cox Enterprises) and features programming from Fox News Radio and Salem Radio Network.[1]

History[edit]

The station went on the air as WGBE on June 10, 1986. On March 30, 1987, it changed its call sign to WGMM. On November 30, 1988, it became WCGA. On March 17, 2005, it became DWCGA, then WCGA again on May 18, 2007.[2]

On January 15, 2020, the FCC revoked WCGA's license for failure to pay delinquent regulatory fees owed to the Commission.[3] On February 11, 2020, the FCC rescinded the revocation, as it had not considered Cox Broadcast Group's response to the order.[4][5]
