WUGN (997 Family Life Radio ) is a non-commercial Christian FM radio station in Midland, Michigan, operating on 99.7 MHz. The station broadcasts with 100,000 watts from a 997 foot tower, giving it a strong signal throughout the middle of the mitten of Michigan from Houghton Lake southward to Lansing and Flint. Under the right conditions, the station can be heard south to Ann Arbor and almost as far south as the Ohio and Indiana state lines, northward into Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and even as far away as Port Clinton, Ohio.

The station began broadcasting in the early 1970s as the third station owned and operated by Family Life Communications (commonly referred to as FLR or Family Life Radio). WUGN plays a contemporary mix of Christian music. WUGN's local morning show is Peter Brooks and the Morning team, a family-friendly breakfast program.

In 1999, WUGN won the Marconi Christian station of the year.

The 99.7 frequency previously broadcast from 1961 to 1970 as WQDC, which was Midland's first FM station. WQDC's studios were on Main Street in downtown Midland. It is unknown if today's WUGN operates on WQDC's original license (having signed on three years after WQDC had gone dark), or if a separate one was issued for WUGN as an entirely-new station.
