WPEG ('Power 98') is a mainstream urban radio station in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. It broadcasts at 97.9 FM, and is owned by CBS Radio. WPEG features up and coming artists 'Future Flavaz' on its HD-2 station and sister WFNZ on its HD-3 station. The 97.9 frequency came on the air in Concord, North Carolina in 1961 as WEGO-FM, and simulcast the programming of its sister AM station until 1967. That year, the station became a beautiful music station with the call letters WPEG. The station was owned by the Suburban Radio Group from Belmont, North Carolina. The call letters were chosen by then-station manager Jim Keel to honor his wife, Peggy Keel.
