WIII (branded as I-100) is a radio station serving the vicinity of Ithaca and Cortland, New York, with a classic rock format. This station broadcasts at 99.9 MHz in Cortland and 100.3 MHz (via translator W262AD) in Ithaca. It is owned by Saga Communications.

History[edit]

Prior to Saga's ownership, WIII was owned by Citadel Communications as part of an AM/FM combo with then-WKRT 920 AM (now WYBY) until 2007, when Citadel left the market. Because of market ownership caps, Saga donated WYBY to Bible Broadcasting Network.

I-100 is currently formatted as a classic rock station, primarily using the Dial-Global Classic Rock service. It has a local morning show from 6-10am every weekday - Classic Mornings with Kat Walters. The WIII call letters have been in place since November 1994 - prior to that it was WYYS, WNYP-FM and WOKW.

WIII joined the New York Giants Radio Network in 2012.
