Description

WICY (1490 AM) is an American radio station broadcasting a country music format. Licensed to Malone, New York, United States, the station is owned by the Martz Communications Group. WICY is known on-air as 102.7 103.5 WICY (after its FM translator frequencies). Unlike Martz FM sister stations WYUL and WVNV, WICY exclusively operates as a local station for Malone and nearby communities. The station does well in Canadian border communities as well including Huntingdon, Trout River and Cornwall to the Northwest. WICY had a U.S. Federal Communications Commission construction permit to move to 1500 AM, with a city of license of Mooers, New York, with a proposed facility that would direct a 50,000-watt daytime signal towards Montreal; however, plans would be soon discarded, following complaints that the station's focus on Montreal would have meant substantially reduced coverage for information related to Malone or Franklin County. On September 20, 2021 WICY changed their format from 1980s’ hits to country, branded as "Wild Country".

Translators

In addition to the main station, WICY is relayed by two FM translators.
