WCDL is an AM broadcasting radio station licensed to Carbondale, Pennsylvania. The station operates on a frequency of 1440 kHz with 5,000 Watts of power using a non-directional antenna during daytime hours only. However, the station has plans filed with the Federal Communications Commission to extend their broadcast hours to nighttime with a power reduction to 37 Watts (same non-directional signal) during that time period. The Federal Communications Commission considers WCDL a Class D AM broadcast station. Route 81 Radio are the current owners of WCDL.

The station flipped radio formats from Adult Standards to a mix of Tropical and Spanish language adult contemporary [1] radio format in August 2007 [2] branded as "Caliente" (translation from Spanish into English as "Hot") to serve the region's growing Hispanic population[3]. Sister station WNAK, 730 kHz, located in Nanticoke, started simulcasting WCDL programming in October 2007[1].

In late 2008 WCDL returned to the Adult Standards format[4], simulcasting with WNAK 730 kHz under the slogan "The Greatest Music of All Time".
