WMGG (1470 AM, "Noti America 1470 AM ") is a talk radio station in the Tampa Bay area of Florida.[1] WHBO was licensed to serve the community of Dunedin, Florida, and is owned by Genesis Communications. WMGG recently switched its transmitter facilities to Egypt Lake, FL, a suburb of Tampa, and no longer identifies Dunedin as its target service area.

Prior to June 5, 2009, WMGG was an oldies/adult standards music station branded as "Mega 1470". Prior to December 29, 2008, WMGG was an all-sports station as an ESPN Radio affiliate. [2] In the late 1960s and 1970s, the station played Top-40/rock "gold" as WCWR.

As a result of Genesis Communications' announced purchase of WMGG,[3] where the news/talk format of WWBA now airs at 820 AM, WHBO's sports format moved to WWBA's former frequency, 1040 AM, in October 2008, and simulcasted on 1470 in the short-term. The WHBO calls moved to 1040, with 1470 receiving new calls, WMGG.[4]

In 2011, WMGG switched to news/talk, picking up programs formerly on sister station WWBA, which has since changed an all-news format. WMGG currently has a Spanish-music format.
