WICY (1490 AM & 102.7 FM) is an American radio station broadcasting an oldies format. Licensed to Malone, New York, USA, 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; 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.
In addition to the main station, WICY is relayed by an FM translator.
