“From 1989 to 2014, the call letters WOMG have been synonymous with Classic Hit music," WOMG OM BREND JOHNSON said " In 2016, we are so excited to bring WOMG back and play the music our listeners have been begging us to play. So many of these songs and artists have not been played in COLUMBIA in years.”
