WBDR (106.7 FM) is a Top 40 music formatted radio station in Watertown, New York.

The original on-air date of WBDR and its format is unknown, however, the station's previous call letters were WWLF at 106.7 FM, until they were changed to the WBDI calls in 2000.

The station also simulcasted 102.7 WBDR as ("The Border 102-7, 106-7") from 1996 until 2004. In late 2003, WBDI 106.7 simulcasted on all three frequencies 92.7, 102.7 and 106.7 for a brief period until 102.7 left "The Border" network in 2004, separating from WBDI's format and dropping CHR in favour of a country music format. WBDI then simulcasted their signal on WBDB 92.7 FM, known as ("The Border 92-7, 106-7"), until 2007. Now 106.7 is the only frequency broadcasting WBDR's programming.

On December 3, 2007 WBDB changed their call letters to WQTK and changed their format to talk, separating from WBDI's format. On February 26, 2008 WBDI changed their call letters to WBDR (102.7 changed their call letters to WLYK on the same day).[1]

Notable on-air personalities include Johnny Spezzano, Billy Ballistic, Blade, and Bacon.
