WTGV-FM (97.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a classic hits/oldies format, serving Sandusky and the Thumb and Blue Water area of Michigan. WTGV is owned and operated by Sanilac Broadcasting.

The station began broadcasting in 1971 under the WMIC-FM call sign, simulcasting WMIC-AM 1560 (now 660). WMIC-FM separated programming in 1977, switching to a beautiful music format, and adopted the WTGV ("Thumb's Great Voice") call sign two years later. The beautiful music format was updated to a MOR music mix over the years, and then to mainstream adult contemporary by 2000.

WTGV-FM was almost fully automated and voicetracked, except for simulcasts of news and information programming from its sister station WMIC (which are carried solely on WTGV after AM sign-off). The station also features a large amount of sports play-by-play, including the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Lions, and local high-school sports such as basketball and football.

On June 20, 2017 97.7 switched from automated AC to a satellite-fed Classic Hits/Oldies format branded as "97-7 WTGV." The format targets Hits of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. News, sports, and weather remains unchanged.
