History

WSWG signed on December 24, 1980 as WVGA, an ABC affiliate, covering an area where ABC signals from Tallahassee, Jacksonville and Gainesville are weak or non-existant, at a time when ABC was the top network in America. Founded by Hi Ho Broadcasting (which also owned WDHN in Dothan, Alabama), WVGA carried a typical slate of ABC and syndicated shows. Nickname: Where Florida Begins Official website: http://www. ... Gainesville is the largest city and county seat of Alachua County, Florida. ... WDHN is an ABC-affiliated television station in Dothan, Alabama, broadcasting on channel 18. ... Dothan is a city located in extreme southeastern Alabama. ...


In 1986, Hi Ho sold their stations to Morris Network, a broadcasting company owned by the Morris Newspaper Corporation. Morris Multimedia Inc Savannah, Georgia Founded by Charles h. ...


Unfortunately, by the late-1980s, WVGA was in financial trouble -- they closed their news department, relied more on bartered and brokered programming and infomercials, and started to sign off earlier, at 12 Midnight, following Nightline. The station's owners originally planned on selling the station to the owners of Tallahassee's WTXL, and making WVGA a satellite, but that fell through. Nightline is a late-night hard news program broadcast by ABC in the United States, and has a franchised formula to other networks and stations elsewhere in the world. ... The Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBG) is the operator of the largest number of local television stations in the United States, with a total of 62 stations across the country in 39 small and medium markets. ...


WVGA's fate was sealed in January 1992, when a plane crashed into WVGA's transmission tower. Not having enough funds to rebuild the tower, Morris opted to close down WVGA instead.


In 1994, Morris sold WVGA to Hutchens Communications, who reopened the station in 1995 as a WB affiliate, WGVP. In 2001, after losing The WB (when they insisted on putting all small-market affiliates on cable only), WGVP affiliated with its current network, UPN, and re-called itself WVAG. The WB Television Network is a television network in the United States, founded as a joint venture between the Warner Bros. ... UPN (which originally stood for the United Paramount Network) is a television network in the United States, owned by CBS Corporation, which also owns the more widespread CBS network. ...


Hutchens would sell WVAG to Padon Communications in 2004, who in turn, would sell it to Gray soon afterward. Under Gray, the station was re-called WSWG, and gave the control of the station to WCTV.


In September 2006, The WB and UPN will effectively merge to form The CW network. With WFXU taking on The CW, it is unclear if WSWG would flip to My Network TV, go indy, or even flip to CBS (which was what Gray planned on doing as a digital subchannel for WSWG in fall 2006). The Crimson White, known colloquially as The CW, is the student-run newspaper of the University of Alabama. ... WFXU and WTLF are The WB television affiliate stations serving the Tallahassee, Florida television market. ... My Network TV is an upcoming television network in the United States, owned by Rupert Murdochs News Corporation, which is scheduled to launch on Tuesday, September 5, 2006. ... CBS (an abbreviation for Columbia Broadcasting System, the former legal name of the network) is one of the largest television networks, and formerly one of the largest radio networks, in the United States. ...
