WYNE is an Oldies formatted broadcast radio station licensed to North East, Pennsylvania, serving North East and Erie in Pennsylvania and Ripley in New York.

WYNE is owned and operated by Mercyhurst College.

In the 1970s and 1980s, the call sign WYNE had been assigned to a popular "Top 40" and Country-formatted radio station licensed to Kimberly, Wisconsin, with studios in Winnebago County, Wisconsin, on 1150 kHz. In 1991 that station was bought by the owners of WHBY in Appleton, who then placed WHBY on the old WYNE transmitter.

WYNE broadcasts in C-Quam AM Stereo.

Jingles

WYNE's jingles sound very close to the PAMS jingles from the "MusicRadio 77" era of WABC.

Interesting Fact

When WYNE signs off the air, Cincinnati station WCKY over-the-air broadcast signal can be heard.
