Our audience grew up with radio. The music of CooL97 appeals to the largest population segment in American history, the ‘baby boomers’ and beyond. This multi-generation grew up listening to the radio, and to this day, music remains a part of their identity. Some even consider hearing their favorite songs on the radio important to their well-being. You can find the hits of Elton John, Neil Diamond, The Beach Boys, Michael Jackson, The Eagles, James Taylor, Journey, and more...right here on CooL96!


CooL97 is ALL LOCAL, ALL THE TIME. Our DJ's and staff live and work in the community. We host live concerts, participate in local events, and supports fund raising efforts.

Equinox Broadcasting

Equinox Broadcasting started with a constuction permit to build a radio station from the ground up. That became WCDW CooL100 in Binghamton, put on the air in 1995 by George Hawras and Barbara Hawras.


Beginning with a small staff, CooL100 (now CooL106.7) quickly gained a loyal listening audience. This allowed Equinox to grow and eventually expand to its current status of eight FM radio stations, with a broadcast reach that spans the entire NY Southern Tier and the Northern Tier of PA, including the Binghamton and Elmira/Corning markets.


Now with more than 30 employees, including many of the area's best and most seasoned broadcast professionals, Equinox Broadcasting is the only locally owned media group in the Southern Tier with headquarters at 101 Main St. in Johnson City, NY and offices at 734 Chemung St., Horseheads, NY.


The Binghamton stations include: WCDW-FM "CooL106.7", WDRE-FM "100.5 The Drive", WCDW-HD2 "Solid Gold 104.5", WCDW-HD3 "Hot 92.9", and WCDW-HD4 "Sunny 107.1".


The Elmira/Corning stations are: WMTT-FM "95 The Met", WPHD-FM "Cool96", WPHD-HD2 "Hot 102.9", WPHD-HD3 "93theDrive" and WZHD-FM "Cool97".
