The station held LP calls until c. October 2009, when it acquired Class A television service status to become WMKG-CA. Despite the station's low-power status, its location near Lake Michigan assures amplification of their signal across the lake into the Milwaukee market within the Port Washington and Sheboygan areas.

The station has had several minor network affiliations throughout its history, affiliates with The Family Channel. According to a MLive.com article dated December 25, 2016, "Channel 49.1 -- channel 397 on cable -- broadcasts family-oriented shows and Muskegon programs including churches and square dancing. Channel 49.2 broadcasts religious music. Channel 49.3 shows movies. Channel 49.4 has a western theme." The station has produced original programming from the start. Programs include "Dial A Bargain", a show where a viewer calls in for gift certificates, "Muskegon Today", a local program dealing with issues involving the city. Other programs include "Table Talk", "The Doorstop Nation", "TV BINGO" For most of its history, the station had a local newscast airing at 5:30 PM. However, it is no longer on the air. In October 2007, Kelley Enterprises put the station up for sale, including the license and equipment, citing that the owner is retiring and has plans to move south.

As of 2008, the station's license is still per FCC records. Late 2009 the station was sold to BAG LLC of New York and the sale was approved by the FCC, but BAG LCC of New York failed to show up to the closing. In 2009 the station was placed back on the market. In December 2016, the station was for sale on Craigslist. Kanzer plans to update the station's operations to digital standards, along with using its post-spectrum move to channel 31 to its advantage, rebranding it in connection with U. S. Highway 31, which runs up the Lake Michigan shoreline, including an older style "31" highway shield as its new logo. Official website Query the FCC's TV station database for WMKG

Moombahton

Moombahton is a fusion genre of house music and reggaeton, created by American DJ and producer Dave Nada in Washington, D. C. in 2008. Nada coined the name as a portmanteau of "Moombah" and reggaeton. Identifying characteristics of moombahton include a thick and spread-out bass line, dramatic builds, a two-step pulse with quick drum fills. Moombahton includes rave music synthesizers and acappella rap samples. Musically, moombahton mixes the rhythmic origins of Dutch house or house music, the slow tempo of reggaeton between 100 and 128 beats per minute, accompanied by percussions from reggaeton. Moombahton was created by Dave Nada in late 2009 while DJing his cousin's high school cut party in Washington, D. C.. He blended the house and club music which he had planned to play with the reggaeton and bachata the guests were listening to by slowing down Afrojack's remix of Silvio Ecomo and Chuckie's song "Moombah!" from 128 BPM to 108 BPM, to create the basis of the genre.«... I tried to slow down my house songs, I put the Afrojack remix of "Moombah" by Silvio Ecomo and DJ Chuckie at 108 BPM, the people went crazy.

I did the same with Sidney Samson's "Riverside", it was a delirium. I understood that I would have to record these editions as soon as possible.» Dave Nada Between late 2009 and early 2010, Nada worked on a five track extended play of moombahton tracks, released in March 2010, with the support of the DJ Ayres and the DJ Tittsworth at T&A Records. Moombahcore is a subgenre of moombahton with dubstep influences incorporating elements of newstyle hardcore and techstep.

Moombahsoul is a subgenre, it combines the elements of soul, deep house and chill with moombahton backed drums and textures.
