WAYS (1500 AM, "Oldies Radio 1500") was a radio station serving the Macon, Georgia area with an Oldies format. This station is under ownership of Cumulus Media. It is an affiliate of ABC Radio's True Oldies Channel.[1]

Because it shares the same frequency as "clear channel" station WWWT-AM in Washington, D.C., it broadcasts only during the Daytime hours. However, their online webcast is available 24 hours a day. For many years, WAYS operated on the FM dial at 99.1 Mhz, with a "Top 40" format. The station "flipped" to an oldies format in 1992 and was eventually "moved" down the FM dial to 105.5 Mhz, before leaving the FM band all together. The WAYS call letters, originally assigned to a legendary Charlotte, N.C. radio station, were assigned to then Multimedia owned WMAZ-FM, in the mid-1980's. Prior to becoming WAYS, WMAZ-FM was known as "FM 99". WDEN-FM, a top rated country station now broadcasts on 99.1 Mhz in the Macon area.

On September 4, 2009, WIFN replaced WAYS at 1500 AM, with WROK-FM taking the 105.5 FM frequency that WIFN formerly used.
