WEXT (97.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an adult album alternative format. Licensed to Amsterdam, New York, USA, the station serves Albany, New York. The station is currently owned by WMHT Educational Telecommunications and features programing from American Public Media, National Public Radio and Public Radio International. WEXT began operations as WCSS-FM in 1975 airing a top 40/oldies format. On July 7, 2007, WMHT-FM dropped their classical service on WBKK and launched a new adult album alternative format under the Exit 97.7 branding and the WEXT calls. The station highlights a lot of local music, calling it "Local 518" (in reference to the station's area code). Featured programs include the children's rock and roll program called "The Peanut Butter Jam."
