WOBL is an AM radio station licensed to Oberlin, Ohio and serving the western portion of the Cleveland, Ohio market, operating on 1320 kHz. WOBL features a classic country format, dubbed as "Gold Country 1320," along with an array of local newscasts and high school sports coverage.

WOBL signed on in December 1971 at 1570 kHz as a daytime-only station with 250 watts of power. The station soon moved to a full-time signal at 1320 kHz by September 1976, where it has remained to this day. Its country music format has been the longest running such format of any station in the region, even with a segue into "classic country" in early 2003.

WOBL has been a family operation throughout its entire history, founded by Harry Wilber, and now run by Doug and Lorie Wilber. Its sister station is WDLW 1380AM in Lorain, acquired in late 2002. Both stations' respective studios are at the WOBL transmitter site.
