WFRY-FM (branded as Froggy 97) is a radio station serving the Watertown area of New York with a Modern Country format. It broadcasts on FM frequency 97.5 MHz and is under ownership of Stephens Media Group.

Froggy 97 signed on January 6, 1997, after the 97.5 frequency was formerly occupied by WCIZ-FM until it moved to 93.5 FM. The original airdate of WCIZ is unknown. The history of the 97.5 frequency in Watertown is also unknown, it was used over the years by different radio stations, callsigns and formats.

Froggy 97 itself was originally owned by Pennsylvania based Forever Broadcasting as part of their chain of Froggy themed country stations which they owned throughout the country. Forever later sold the station to Regent Broadcasting, who later sold the radio station to its current owner Steven'so Media Group out of Tulsa Oklahoma.

Froggy's current live on air talents during the week are: James Pond in the mornings, Webb Foot in Mid-days, & Annie Croakly in Afternoons.
