WFRH is a traditional Christian music and teaching radio station licensed to Kingston, New York and serving the Mid-Hudson Valley and points north. It is owned by the non-profit Family Stations Incorporated and broadcasts on 91.7 MHz from a tower in Kingston.

The station runs programming from Family Radio and first signed on the air in 1993 to help expand the reach of the Family Radio network at the behest of listeners of the distantly based WFME in Newark, New Jersey. Since its inception, it has aired all programming from the network with the only local component being a limited local staff.

Translators

Currently, WFRH is also heard on the following frequencies:

  • 104.3 W282AD East Windham
  • 104.3 W282BI Catskill
  • 105.3 W287AB Albany (broadcasting from the Helderberg Mountains tower farm in New Scotland)

The Albany frequency is prone to frequent reception problems and outages due to being located between two full-power FM stations and WFRH being adjacent to local WRPI.

At one point in the late-1990s, WFRH maintained a somewhat larger translator network, mostly in Greene and Dutchess Counties, to improve its reach to the north and to attempt to also target Albany. These translators, and their current status, is as follows.
