WGCY is an American FM radio station broadcasting at 106.3 MHz, licensed to Gibson City, Illinois. The station is locally owned and operated by the McCullough family (d/b/a F&G Broadcasting) and began broadcasting in 1983. The station's studios are located on South Sangamon Avenue in Gibson City.
WGCY is one of the few remaining commercial radio stations in North America to feature the Beautiful Music format, consisting chiefly of a mix of instrumental covers of pop songs and soft vocals (including softer Top 40 oldies, standards, and album cuts by MOR artists). In addition to its easy listening music, WGCY features local newscasts, farm reports and sports play-by-play and hourly newscasts from CBS Radio.
The station expanded its broadcast schedule to 24 hours a day in 2000 after having previously signed off at Midnight. Popular on-air features include local high school sports, Radiofied Ads (a Tradio-type feature), Friday Afternoon Oldies Get-Together and The Tom Benefiel Show (big band, jazz, swing, and 1940s and 1950s oldies) Friday nights.
