WABC (770 AM), known as “NewsTalkRadio 77 WABC” is a radio station in New York City. Owned by the broadcasting division of Cumulus Media, the station broadcasts on a clear channel and is the flagship station of Cumulus Media Networks (formerly Citadel Media and ABC Radio Networks). WABC shares studio facilities with sister stations WNSH (94.7 FM) and WPLJ (95.5 FM) above Pennsylvania Station in midtown Manhattan. Its transmitter is located in Lodi, New Jersey.

Since 1982 WABC has programmed a talk radio format, and has been one of the most successful talk stations locally and in the United States. Many of WABC’s hosts have now moved on to national syndication. The station also carries reports from ABC News. Before 1982, WABC broadcast a Top 40 music format, was the dominant music station in the New York City area, and served as a template for many other Top 40 stations in different cities.

WABC also uses on-air slogans such as The Station of the Nation, Breaking News & Stimulating Talk, and New York’s 50,000 watt Beacon of Freedom.
Slogan "Where New York Comes To Talk.”
