WJYE is located in the Buffalo, New York area and broadcasts at 96.1 FM. Studios are located at the Rand Building in Downtown Buffalo and its transmitter is located at the top of the same building.WJYE signed on in 1966 (As WBNY-FM). It currently is owned by Townsquare Media. The station runs an adult contemporary format and has had variations of this format since 1988, having previously been a beautiful music/easy listening station. It is branded as "The New 96.1 JOY-FM, Today's Lite Hits" (the JY in WJYE stands for the word "joy"), though WJYE had originally abandoned that branding in 1995.WJYE is the Buffalo area home of the Delilah program since the summer of 2000.Starting in 2007, the station transitioned from its previous soft rock format to a more adult contemporary sound. In recent times, the station played more rhythmic songs like Single Ladies by Beyoncé, but rhythmic songs are still rare on WJYE's playlist. It is one of three AC stations in the Buffalo radio market, one being WTSS-FM and the other being CHRE-FM in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. Those two stations lean in more of a hot adult contemporary direction.
