History[edit]

WGMF-FM was assigned the WNKZ call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on December 22, 2008.[1] The station changed its call sign to WDYS on March 3, 2016.

New FM booster station, WVYS-FM2, Towanda, Pennsylvania signed on with 1,200 watts of ERP covering the greater Towanda area on 7/31/2010.

FM translator station, W297BG, Ulster, Athens, Sayre, Pennsylvania signed on with 235 watts of ERP on 107.3 covering the greater Sayre area on 3/20/2011.

The Yes FM studios are located at State Route 6, Martin Office Complex, Wysox, PA 18854, 570-265-7600

On July 9, 2018, WVYS (and its translator and booster) split from its simulcast with WDYS and switched to a simulcast of country formatted WNBT-FM 104.5 Wellsboro, branded as "Bigfoot Country" under new WZBF calls.[3] The split came following the sale of the three licenses to WNBT-FM owner Seven Mountains Media effective June 29, 2018.

The station changed its call sign to WGMF-FM on July 13, 2018.
