For the fictional Media Company, see Galaxy Communications (comics).

Galaxy Communications (originally The Radio Corporation) is a radio broadcasting company with radio stations entirely in the Central New York area.

In 1989, the first Galaxy station, WKLL was launched by the current CEO, Ed Levine, and his business partner, Bob Raide. In the 1990s, Galaxy launched additional stations in Syracuse and Utica. In 2001, the headquarters was moved from Bridgeport to a new building in Armory Square, located in downtown Syracuse. This building has multiple street level studios allowing people to see the DJ's at work. WKLL remains owned by Galaxy to this day.

Galaxy divested itself of its Albany, New York cluster and swapped several stations in a multi-owner deal that included Clear Channel Communications in Utica/Rome 2007.

Several stations formerly in the Galaxy family were sold to the Educational Media Foundation.

  • The Bone of Albany, NY: (WOOB and WBOE, now WYAI and WYKV respectively)
  • WSCP-FM of Sandy Creek/Pulaski, NY (now WGKV)
  • WRCK in Utica (now WKVU) - Swapped with WOUR
  • WOKR: Remsen, NY
  • Galaxy was believed, though not confirmed, to be running WUTI as well, though because of ownership caps, it's not immediately clear if this was truly the case. Since that time, WUTI has been acquired by Leatherstocking Media Group.
  • WZUN was also sold to Wayne Mack's WZUN Communications LLC effective October 1, 2013.
