WEDG is a radio station in Buffalo, New York, USA. The station's on air branding is "103.3 The Edge" and broadcasts on 103.3 MHz FM. WEDG has an active rock format and is best known for its afternoon-drive hosts, "Shredd and Ragan," and being the co-flagship of the Buffalo Bills Radio Network with sister WGRF. The station is owned by Citadel Broadcasting.WEDG signed on in 1947 as WYSL-FM. The station switched calls to WPHD in 1970, when a progressive rock format was added to the overnight programming. This format made WPHD famous, as well as its morning duo, Robert W. Taylor and Harv Moore, which ran from 1978 to 1989.In 1989, the station changed call signs from WPHD to WUFX, "103.3 The Fox." Taylor and Moore were fired in favor of Shredd and Ragan, with Shredd coming from AM 1400 WXBX. The format lasted about six years. (Both Taylor and Moore would eventually end up on WHTT, which is now WEDG's sister station, on different shifts. Moore would leave WHTT in 2007, and joined WECK after its switch to news/talk in 2008 before being released just months after the format change).In 1995, the station adopted an alternative rock format and its current call sign and branding. At the time, Toronto radio station CFNY, known as "The Edge", was making inroads in Western New York. Originally an alternative rock station, it shifted to active rock in 2004 since WBUF flipped from active rock to FM talk. However, R&R began reporting them as an active rock station in the fall of 2005. From August 2006 to March 2007, R&R reported them again to the alternative panel, but it has since reverted to the active rock panel. In addition, crosstown rival CHTZ-FM of St. Catharines, Ontario has also shifted to active rock from mainstream rock to have similar sounds to WEDG, mainly due to the station switching hands from Standard Radio to the current Astral Media. Recently in 2008, the station began playing more classic rock like The Cult, Van Halen, Joe Dolce and U2 along with its current playlist.
