The station went on the air in 1965 at the 101.7 frequency as WXYJ-FM under the ownership of Bud Paxson; it signed on at roughly the same time as what was then its sister station, WNYP-TV. It later changed to WHUG, "Huggin' Country", and ultimately moved to 101.9 MHz; this was part of an agreement between WHUG and WXOX in Attica so that both could increase their power. It has long been Jamestown's country music outlet. The station changed call signs to WMHU, "102 Moo", in January 2001. The station changed its call sign back to the current WHUG in 2004.
From 1994 until his death in 2012, Bruce Baker, another local personality, hosted his long-running three-hour classic country program on the station on Saturday mornings. The classic country block remains on the station in the time slot with other hosts.
