WABG-TV signed-on October 20, 1959, as the Delta's first television station.  The station was constructed by and licensed to Bahakel Communications from its corporate office in Charlotte, North Carolina.  In 1983, the Bahakel Company erected a 2,000 foot tower for WABG-TV in Inverness, Mississippi.  The antennae was the tallest in the state and the highest allowable at full power broadcasting by the FCC at that time.  The original primary operating facility was located at the city of license, Greenwood, Mississippi.  Following a fire that completely destroyed the Greenwood station in 1985, Bahakel Communications rebuilt the Greenwood facility and also moved the primary operation to its satellite facility on Washington Avenue in Greenville, Mississippi, where it still remains.   In 2007, WABG-TV completed a $1.3 million installation of a new digital transmission facility.  The technical advancements enabled the station to launch the Delta's first local Fox station, DeltaFox10.  DeltaFox10 began broadcasting on September 12, 2007, on the digital sub-channel of WABG-TV.

On October 29, 2007, WABG's ABC and FOX affiliates were sold to Charles Harker, President of Commonwealth Broadcasting Group, Incorporated.   Since 2007,      WABG-TV has been continuously enhanced by the technical upgrades provided by Commonwealth Broadcasting.  WABG-TV's master control and production facilities have been upgraded to high definition resulting in high quality local, network and syndicated programming for WABG-TV viewers.  In fact, WABG-TV is the first television station in the Mississippi Delta to deliver high definition local news programming to its viewers. The advancements in its operations have also enabled WABG-TV viewers stellar signals by providing direct feeds to cable and satellite providers from its primary facility in Greenville, Mississippi.
