WFME (106.3 FM) is a radio station airing Christian music and teaching programs. Licensed to Mount Kisco, New York, USA, the station serves Northern Westchester and Putnam Counties. The station is owned by Family Radio. [1] Family Radio has applied to the FCC for permission to program the station with Family Radio's non-commercial religious format from its former 94.7 FM station's studios in West Orange, New Jersey and in a public statement, Charlie Menut, Family Radio's regional vice president and former station manager/chief engineer for Newark, New Jersey's WFME (now WNSH) stated before that station signed off that WDVY would assume the WFME call-sign until a new suitable AM station in the New York City tri-state area could be acquired.[2]

History[edit]

The station went on-the-air as WVIP-FM on January 15, 1964. On September 26, 1993, the station was sold and changed its call sign to WMJU, and on November 11, 1999 to WFAF.[3]

It was announced on February 25, 2012 that WFAF would begin simulcasting the country music station WDBY "KICKS 105.5 FM" from Brookfield, Connecticut on 106.3 starting Thursday, March 1st. [4] The switch was moved up to February 29, 2012 at Noon. To reflect the format change, Cumulus changed the call-sign from WFAF to WDVY.

Previously the station had been simulcasting WFAS-FM 103.9 FM, an adult contemporary station licensed to Bronxville, New York. For more history see WDBY.

WDVY was sold to Family Stations as part of the agreement to sell Family Stations' WFME, Newark, New Jersey to Atlanta-based Cumulus Media. [5] The WDBY simulcast went silent on Monday, January 14, 2013, in preparation for Family Radio, the previous programming from 94.7, to move there along with the WFME calls. The station began playing traditional Christian hymns that afternoon and the full Family Radio feed on Tuesday, January 15, 2013.
