WUVG is the call sign for the Univision owned-and-operated station licensed to Athens, GA and is part of the Atlanta, GA market. It broadcasts on digital channel 48, displayed on tuners as 34. It has a subcarrier, 48.2, which is with the UniMás (formerly TeleFutura) network.

Channel 34 first opened on April 18, 1987 as independent WNGM (the call standing for North Georgia Mountains) and served the city of Athens solely. It carried CBS's The Pat Sajak Show late nights as it was passed up by Atlanta's regular affiliate WAGA (now with Fox). In Atlanta, Sajak's show was carried by WVEU/channel 69 (now CW's WUPA).

In 1999, the station relocated their broadcast facilities to Atlanta and changed their call to WHOT (denoting one of Atlanta's nicknames, "Hot-lanta"). It was acquired on the city's cable systems as a result, and they picked up the Fox Kids line-up of shows after then-WB affiliate WATL/channel 36 dropped it. In 2001, the station was acquired by the Spanish network Univision and was affiliated with them. Their call changed to WUVG.
