WNWI (1080 AM) is a radio station broadcasting an ethnic radio format. Licensed to Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA, it serves the Chicago area. The station is currently owned by Birach Broadcasting Corporation.

WNWI's calls stand for "Northwestern Indiana", a reference to the station's former city of license of Valparaiso, Indiana. The station broadcast a full-service adult contemporary music format from Valparaiso from its sign-on in the mid-1960s until the spring of 1998, when it officially moved into the Chicago market by changing its city of license to Oak Lawn and relocating its transmitter to Riverdale.
