WINE (940 AM) is a radio station broadcasting an All Sports format. Licensed to Brookfield, Connecticut, USA, it serves the Danbury area. The station is currently owned by Cumulus Licensing Llc. In the 1970's and early 80's WINE was a Top 40 station. As the audience migrated to the FM band, WINE became a full-service adult contemporary station.

In the 90's WINE bcame part of an all-news network that included WNLK, which both became newstalk a few years later. After being sold to Cumulus, WINE spent a few years as a nostalgia station, along with its now sister station, WPUT (Brewster, NY). Now both are part of ESPN Radio 24/7. WINE's nighttime signal is very weak at 4 watts. WPUT airs daytime only.

WINE's longtime competitor is 800 AM WLAD in Danbury. WLAD is now a newstalk station. WINE's FM sister station is rock station, WRKI, as well as Patterson, New York's WDBY, which has a booster station in Danbury.
