Waitt Radio Networks is a national radio network based in Omaha, Nebraska, formerly owned by NRG Media and purchased in April 2008 by Triton Radio Networks. They specialize in 24-hour formats for affiliated radio stations across the United States and Canada which are specifically localized for their client stations, although they also are known for commercial production services. Waitt Radio Networks also provides their affiliates with coverage of breaking news events.

Their 24-hour formats include:

On April 30, 2008, it was announced that NRG Media had sold the assets of Waitt Radio Networks to Triton Radio Networks, which also operates Dial Global Digital 24/7 formats (once part of Westwood One). According to Dial Global's website, Dial Global's plans are to merge Waitt's existing 24-hour formats and commercial production services into its own operations[1] as indicated by this colored triangle.
