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 DJs at work. WKLL remains owned by Galaxy to this day.

in 2016 Galaxy moved their Utica studios (WKLL,WOUR,WUMX,WTLB & WRNY) from Washington Mills to Downtown Utica inside the brand new Landmarc building (The old HSBC Location) and renamed it Galaxy Media. Inside their new location the walls on the side of the street for each studio are made entirely of glass allowing people to see DJs at work similar to the "Good Morning America" Studios.

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
