Radigan Media Group officially adds 94 Rock, WOKN and WELM to family of stations


ELMIRA — Last week, the Radigan Media Group of family-owned local radio stations got a little bit bigger.  After a year-long lease arrangement, we officially closed on the purchase of 94 Rock WLVY, Today’s Hot New Country 99.5 WOKN, and 1410 WELM.

These 3 stations, along with their 4 associated FM translators, elevate Radigan Media to be the largest locally owned independent broadcast radio company in Binghamton, Elmira and Corning with 17 signals, covering over 5,000 square miles.

Radigan Media was founded in 2005, and started with the 2006 acquisition of WEBO in Owego, and followed with 4 FM translators between 2009 and 2018.  In 2020, longtime Valley station owner Chuck Carver retired, selling WATS/WAVR to Radigan, followed by WTTC-AM/FM in Towanda (now WTTC-FM and WTXW-AM).

On January 1st of 2023, Radigan Media began operating the Elmira/Corning stations through a Lease Management Agreement, with Tower Broadcasting, which ended last week with the sale of those stations to Radigan Media.

Radigan Media’s portfolio of local broadcast stations now includes:

Your Hometown Station – WEBO in Owego, NY (98.5, 101.3, 105.1,107.9 FM & 1330 AM) Adult Contemporary
