WNYV (94.1 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an Adult contemporary music/Full-Service format (from 5:30AM through 12:00AM ET). Licensed to Whitehall, New York, United States, the station serves the Saratoga, New York area. The station is owned by Pine Tree Broadcasting Company.[2] WNYV and its AM sister, WVNR in Poultney, simulcast 100% of the time and go by the on-air slogan of "Lakes Region Radio". WVNR/WNYV are unusual in that while these stations are authorized to broadcast 24 hours a day, the stations sign-off every day at midnight (broadcasting for approximately 18½ hours per day).

WNYV has arguably the most underrated FM broadcast signal in western Vermont and eastern New York. WNYV throws a strong signal over Glens Falls, Saratoga, Middlebury, Vermont, and Brandon VT, and almost reaches into Albany. A small mountain range inhibits the signal from reaching clearly into Rutland, though the signal is very listenable in the west-facing hills of Rutland.

WVNR/WNYV are very unusual radio stations in that they are almost totally staffed live when they are on the air. WVNR/WNYV are very community-minded radio stations, providing information about local events, and broadcasting live from many of them.

The music format can be categorized as adult contemporary, but the stations play a wide variety with the DJs actually picking the music that is being played, using charted hits from the 50's through the current year. Hits from past top-40 charts, country, rock, and adult contemporary can all be heard.

The stations do local news breaks at the top of every hour, and weather 4 times an hour.

WVNR/WNYV broadcast live from local high school and local college sports contests, providing a full schedule of coverage.

WVNR and WNYV broadcast 18 hours and 30 minutes (18½ hours) per day, signing off at midnight (staying on the air from 5:30AM through 12:00AM ET).
