WYFM is a commercial FM radio station licensed to Sharon, Pennsylvania, USA, serving the Youngstown, Ohio market broadcasting at 102.9 MHz with a classic rock format. It is one of seven radio stations in the Youngstown market owned by Cumulus Broadcasting with studios and transmitter at "The Radio Center" in Youngstown. The station has a surprisingly large coverage area and can be picked up fairly well even in Akron. WYFM originally signed on the air as WPIC-FM in 1947, simulcasting sister AM 790 WPIC until the early 70s. The call letters were changed to WYFM in 1973. Y-103 broadcast from Sharon/Hermitage, PA until November 1998, when the studios were moved to the "Radio Center" in Youngstown, OH. The transmitter and antenna remained at the Pennsylvania location transmitting from, what was at the time of its construction the tallest self support tower east of the Mississippi (500'), until 2001. The Sharon tower has since been demolished.
