WJGK (formerly WGNY-FM) is a radio station located in Newburgh, New York, which plays mostly gold-based adult contemporary music. The station also has a wide playlist reaching into the Hot AC and Triple A charts.

Originally known as WFMN ("FM Newburgh"; on-air October 29, 1966), the station was owned by brothers Wilbur and Donald Nelson until 1973, when they sold out to Stereo Newburgh, Inc. The following year, WFMN was bought by WGNY (AM), eventually changing its calls to WGNY-FM in 1985, then to WJGK in 2010.

On Feb. 14, 2002 at 12PM, WGNY-FM relaunched as Hits 103.1, The Best Hits and The Best Variety of the 80s, 90s and Today. On June 5, 2005, WGNY-FM started a simulcast with WTSX, a station located in Port Jervis, New York, relaunching first as The Fox 96.7 and Hits 103.1, then as Fox 96.7/103.1. It is now known as The Fox 103.1-Your Adult Pop Alternative. WJGK's transmitter is located in New Windsor, New York.
