WGOD-FM (97.9 FM) is a radio station licensed to serve Charlotte Amalie, U.S. Virgin Islands. The station is owned by Three Angels Corporation. The station is simulcast on WIGT (1690 AM), serving as a repeater of WGOD-FM.

WGOD-FM & WIGT airs a religious radio format featuring a mix of teaching programs and Christian music.[2] The station receives the majority of its programming as part of the Three Angels Broadcasting Network.[3]

This station operated under the call letters WIBS from initial licensing in 1979 until August 13, 1985, when it became WGOD. It operated under the unadorned WGOD call letters until they were moved to a co-owned AM station on October 5, 1989. This FM station has been assigned the WGOD-FM call sign by the Federal Communications Commission since that date.[1]
