WUAG was first established as a noncommercial radio station for The University of North Carolina at Greensboro on July 6, 1964. It went on the air July 28, 1964, as WUAG 89.9 FM, broadcasting with a power of ten watts. In 1969, WEHL began operations as as a student-run carrier current station at 640 AM, operating concurrently with WUAG. The two stations merged in 1973 and began operating exclusively as a student station on the WUAG FM broadcast frequency.
Following frequency changes in 1982 and the late 1980s, and physical moves in 1973 and 1984, the station now broadcasts at 103.1 mHz from studios in the Brown Building on Tate Street.
The WUAG Records include photographs, correspondence, station publications (including program guides and music playlists), and promotional materials. Most of the existing records held by the University Archives have been digitized as part of this project.
