WVGN-LD (channel 19) is a low-power television station in Charlotte Amalie, Saint Thomas, serving as the NBC affiliate for the United States Virgin Islands. Owned by Caribbean Broadcasting Network, it is a sister station to dual This TV/Fox affiliate WVXF (channel 17). WVGN-LD's transmitter is located on Signal Hill.

WVGN is available on Viya Cable channel 11, and as part of the Virgin Islands locals package on Dish Network. The station was also available in Puerto Rico on Dish until December 31, 2013 when it was replaced by a new NBC station on WKAQ-TV's third digital subchannel.

The station simulcasts the 6 a.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m., and 11 p.m. ET editions of WNBC's News 4 New York broadcasts. Notably, WNBC was the default NBC affiliate for the Virgin Islands until WVGN signed on. WVGN does not provide any local newscasts for the U.S. Virgin Islands.
