Pamal Broadcasting, Ltd. is a family-owned radio group with twenty-three stations in medium-to-small markets in the Northeast. Based in the Albany suburb of Latham, New York, Pamal Broadcasting was founded in 1987 as Albany Broadcasting Company, when business man James J. Morrell entered broadcast ownership with the purchase of WFLY and WPTR from Five States Tower Company, a Poughkeepsie, New York-based broadcasting company that also owned radio stations WPDH and WEOK in the mid-Hudson valley. The Pamal name, a portmanteau of the names of Morrell's children, was adopted in 1996 though each cluster uses a unique name.
In 2005, Pamal Broadcasting was the 27th-largest owner of radio stations in the United States. By mid-2011, the company has divested itself of 40% of its radio station licenses from its 2005 high-water mark. Pamal completed its exit from Florida in 2013.
Two stations were to be acquired by Pamal, though never purchased.
