Wgfr


WGFR (92.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an Album Adult Alternative format. Licensed to Glens Falls, New York, USA, the station serves the New York college area. The station is currently owned by Board of Trustees of SUNY Adirondack (formerly named Adirondack Community College).[1][2] The studios are on the college campus, in Washington Hall.

While Triple A (Adult Album Alternative) is WGFR's primary format, other formats are broadcast at various times of day. For example, there is a block devoted to Funk and Hip-hop during the late night hours, and students play a variety of music during set "specialty hours".

WGFR is used in two ways. First, it is used as part of SUNY Adirondack's Radio/TV Broadcasting program. Students are put on air as a requirement of college course COM 188, Applied Radio Production, and/or COM 191, Radio Station Operations. Students also create special programming through COM 188. Other on-air programs are provided by people who have volunteered for an on-air slot.

There is a five week DJ training course that is offered for those who want to be on the air at WGFR, but do not want to partake in the COM 188 or COM 191.

WGFR won Golden Microphone Awards at the March 2014 Intercollegiate Broadcast System annual conference in New York City.
