History[edit]

WMGV has been on the air since the early 1980s. Over the years it has been known as "V103.3", "Classy 103.3, "Kat 103.3", and, back in the 1980s, "Z103"[citation needed].

In 1989, Henry Hinton started New East Communications of Greenville, North Carolina. The company's stations were WKQT, WCZI, and WGPM. WKQT was sold in 1996.[1]

On February 2, 2017, Beasley Media Group announced that it would sell its six stations and four translators in the Greenville-New Bern-Jacksonville, North Carolina market, including WMGV, to Curtis Media Group for $11 million to reduce the company's debt.[2] The sale was completed on May 1, 2017.[3]
