WRNY is a simulcast of WTLB which is also simulcast on WIXT AM 1230 in [[Little Falls (city), New York|Little Falls, New York].

History

As of September 2007, prior to the transfer to Galaxy, the station was operating as part of a four station network of Sports Talk radio stations named "The Sports Stars", carrying a variety of local and syndicated sports talk programming, along with live coverage of local sporting events. The all sports format has been retained with different sports programming. The slogan changed from "Sports Stars" to "1310 The Game." The network switched from Fox Sports to ESPN Radio on March 5, 2010.
