Update 8/29: The four “EZ Rock” branded stations all rebranded as “Kiss” at 8:00 this morning.

Adult Standards “102.7 The Lake” WLYK Cape Vincent, NY has flipped to AC.

WLYK broadcasts out of the Rogers studios in Kingston along with sister Country “Kix 93.5” CKXC and Rock “K-Rock 105.7” CIKR with an additional office in Watertown, NY. The move brings Kingston its first AC station since “Lite 104.3” CFFX flipped to Classic Hits in 2010.
