WGGY (101.3 FM, "Froggy 101") is a commercial FM radio station licensed to serve Scranton, Pennsylvania. The station is owned by Audacy, Inc. and broadcasts a country music format.

WGGY uses HD Radio, and broadcasts an AAA format on its HD2 subchannel.

Froggy 101 received national attention through NBC's series, The Office, with a Froggy 101 bumper sticker displayed on a filing cabinet beside Dwight Schrute's desk.[2][3]

Simulcasts and repeaters

WGGY's programming is simulcast on booster stations WGGY-FM1,[4] WGGY-FM2[5] and WGGY-FM3.[6] Until November 16, 2017, the programming was also simulcast on full-power WGGI (95.9 FM).

On September 26, 2017, Entercom (forerunner of Audacy) announced a divestment of three stations (KSOQ-FM, WGGI, and KSWD) to the Educational Media Foundation (EMF) as part of its merger with CBS Radio to comply with FCC ownership rules in the Wilkes Barre market; the FCC approved the sale of all three stations on November 2.[7] The announcement stated that upon the closing of the acquisition, EMF would flip WGGI to its K-Love network which airs contemporary Christian music; parent station WGGY would remain unchanged.[8] EMF changed WGGI's call sign to WKBP on November 16.[9]
