WNEG, Toccoa

WNEG is a rarity these days. Founded by brothers Roy and Chuck Gaines in 1956, it’s an independent local broadcaster which dominates its community. Most radio today is generically syndicated with little or no connection to the community it serves, but not so with WNEG. The NEG in the call letters stands for North East Georgia, of course.
