WGCC-FM (90.7 FM) is a college radio station broadcasting a Album Oriented Rock format.[1] The station is currently owned by Genesee Community College[2] and is located on the third floor of the Batavia Campus of Genesee Community College and is ran primarily by students who work there.

On November 13, 1985, the radio station first became licensed by the FCC thanks to the station's founding father, Chuck Platt. The station is currently advised by GCC faculty member, and Buffalo radio personality, Val Townsend (Pawlowski). It started out as a mixed format radio station, which included some local bands, along with current favorites like Michael Jackson and The Moody Blues, as well as some classic favorites like The Beatles. At one point, WGCC played some Rap, but the genre was placed out of rotation due to the demographics of the area at the time. Presently, the station's demographic range covers many genres, as students are allowed to play whatever type of music they choose.

During that same year, WGCC hosted a concert called Rockfest. Local bands to the Rochester/Buffalo area such as Down To Earth Approach and New Skin have played at this concert. In 2000, Disturbed was the headlining band for Rockfest, but do to unfortunate circumstances, they were unable to play, thus canceling that year's show. Another band, who was a hopeful for Rockfest 2006 was Kittie, but due to a previously scheduled touring event, they were scratched from the lineup.

WGCC currently broadcasts at 880 Effective Radiated Power (ERP), which gives the station an average broadcast radius of 25 miles. Its tower has an Height Above Average Terrain (HAAT) of 164 feet. The FCC regulations for ERP and HAAT are listed under Title 47, Part 73 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
