WGGY (101.3 FM, "Froggy 101") is a commercial FM radio station licensed to serve Scranton, Pennsylvania. The station is owned by Entercom Communications, through licensee Entercom Wilkes-Barre Scranton, LLC, and broadcasts a country music format.

WGGY uses HD Radio, and broadcasts a rock format on its HD2 subchannel.

Froggy 101 has received national attention through NBC's hit series The Office because character Dwight Schrute has a Froggy 101 bumper sticker displayed on a file cabinet.

Froggy Bumper Sticker[edit]

The Froggy 101 bumper sticker can be seen in the opening credits of the NBC Series The Office. The Froggy 101 bumper sticker can also be seen in Season 8 Episode 3 on the forklift that Dwight crashes into a wall of the warehouse, and in Season 4 Episode 4 when Michael goes to work night shifts at a call center. It is also visible in Season 8 Episode 2 at the tattoo parlor. Froggy 101 can also be seen on the divider between Angela and Pam's desk, the wall against which is the copier machine, in Season 5 episode 5. It is also visible in many episodes on a dividing wall in Dwight's workspace. This version of the logo was designed at Keuka Printing by David Spengler. The current Froggy 101 logo was designed at Solid Cactus by Joe Angrisano.
