About WLEA

AM 1480 WLEA is a newstalk radio station in Hornell NY, that began broadcasting in the late 1940’s. One of the original owners was Skip Huff.   WLEA, since 1951, was owned by the Hornell Broadcasting Corporation, and Charlie Henderson was the main stockholder.  Henderson sold the radio station to Kevin Doran on June 1, 1972.  Doran sold Wlea to Chicago millionaire Herb Channick in 1980.  Kevin always spoke highly of Channick, considering him to be his nicest boss ever.  Herb Channick sold Wlea and Wckr (which Channick got on the air in 1981) back to Doran, in 1990.  Herb Channick passed away in June of 2011, Kevin Doran died in October 2015.  After Kevin’s death, the owner, his widow Mary Margaret, and sons General Manager Brendan, and program director Brian, helped pave the way for the installation of Wlea’s FM translator, 106.9 W295CW, which went up in July 2020.
