WFGM AM 830 is a new radio station to be built in metro Atlanta. , it has a construction permit but is not on the
air. The permit is currently held by WFGM Radio Corp.
It is permitted for 50 kilowatts in the daytime, and 450 watts at night. The mast radiators are in a directional array, using three towers in the daytime, and all four at night. These will be located in the north-central part of morgan Falls park, east of morgan Falls Dam, in north-northwestern sandy springs.
The station's city of license is also Sandy Springs, which was earlier the subject of an issue with another station. When an amendment to the FM table of allotments was requested in the 1990s to move 100.5 from Alabama, the owner proposed it be allotted to Sandy Springs. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) denied this because of the failure of another station to move, and because Sandy Springs was "not a city" — even though it has long been one of the largest in the state, and was only unincorporated at the time because of a long-standing political blockade. The city was finally allowed to incorporate in late 2005, prior to the initial application for WFGM.
