WADR and WUTQ are AM radio stations operating at 1480 kHz and 1550 kHz and located in Remsen, New York and Utica, New York respectively. They are the former members of the "Sports Stars Radio Network" that serves the Central New York area.

The two stations aired programming, alongside WRNY in Rome and WIXT in Little Falls-Herkimer, from Clear Channel Communications's operation in Utica.

Galaxy Communications bought WRNY and WIXT, along with the Sports Stars network, in 2007. With the purchase, the network moves from WUTQ to WTLB in the city of Utica. The move was made due to WTLB's stronger signal.

WUTQ and WADR were not included in the purchase and were sold to Ken Roser. The two stations temporarily simulcasted WBGK in Newport Village, itself simulcasting the Real Country format from ABC Radio.

The stations now broadcast a self produced "beautiful music" format. In addition, long time local radio program hosts Hank Brown as well as Joe Graziano are heard Monday thru Friday. On weekends, these mainstay local shows are broadcast: The Saturday Polka Review, Family Rosary Radio's "Sunday Morning," The Polish Varieties Program and The Voice of The New Italy.
