WZAD (The Wolf) is country music radio station licenced to Wurtsboro, New York that serves the Catskill Mountains region, Orange County, New York, and Pike County, Pennsylvania. The station is owned by Cumulus Media and broadcasts on 97.3 MHz with 620 watts ERP from a tower between Wurtsboro and Monticello. WZAD's programming is a simulcast of sister station 94.3 WKXP Kingston, an arrangement that began in March 2006. Prior to this, WZAD had simulcast the programming of another sister station, 97.7 WCZX Hyde Park. WZAD first signed on in 1990 as part of a wave of new FM stations which signed on in the wake of the FCC's passage of Docket 80-90 which loosened class/frequency restrictions.
