WICY (1490 AM & 102.7 FM) is an American radio station broadcasting an oldies format. Licensed to Malone, New York, United States, the station is owned by the Martz Communications Group. WICY is known on-air as 102.7 WICY (after its translator frequency).

Unlike Martz FM sister stations WYUL and WVNV, WICY exclusively operates as a local station for Malone and nearby communities. The station does well in Canadian border communities as well including Huntingdon, Trout River and Cornwall to the Northwest.

WICY had a U.S. Federal Communications Commission construction permit to move to 1500 AM, with a city of license of Mooers, New York, with a proposed facility that would direct a 50,000 watt daytime signal towards Montreal;[citation needed] however, plans would be soon discarded, following complaints that the station's focus on Montreal would have meant substantially reduced coverage for information related to Malone or Franklin County.

Translators[edit]

In addition to the main station, WICY is relayed by an FM translator.
