WFSY (98.5 FM) is a radio station which normally broadcasts an Adult Contemporary format but during the holidays, broadcasts Christmas music. Licensed to Panama City, Florida, United States, the station also serves the Dothan, AL market. The station is currently owned by iHeartMedia and features programming from Premiere Radio Networks. Current morning programming includes that of Murphy, Sam, and Jodi (from 5 AM to 12 PM).
WFSY went on the air as WGNE-FM in 1971, an FM simulcast of AM beautiful music station WGNE. Because of its position at 98.5 MHz, its callsign was advertised as standing for "Genie Ninety Eight", rather than the AM station's, which just represented its tagline, "Genie Radio".
After the AM station was sold to Gulf Coast Community College in 1982, the station flipped to an oldies format, which lasted until 1986.
In 1986, WGNE-FM became WFSY, marketed as "Sunny 98.5", and flipped from oldies to AC.
