WMVY (92.7 FM) is a community-oriented
adult album alternative radio stationbased in the town of Tisbury, Massachusetts, on the island of Martha's Vineyard. Despite the Martha's Vineyard origin, MVY is widely listened to in both southeastern Massachusetts(particularly Cape Cod) and the area around Newport, Rhode Island(the latter via a translator station on 96.5/W243AI). Thanks to the Internet, WMVY also has a fairly widespread online listenership.Fact|date=November 2007

In June 2005, to better serve the Cape Cod audience, WMVY put two additional translator stations on the air, 100.7 W264BA in Harwich Port and 93.9 W230AW in Centerville. These had previously been used by
Nantucket Public Radiofor WNCK, which rebroadcasts WGBH from Boston. These translators are now rebroadcasting the signal of nearby Christian station WRYPinstead.
