WONW is a News, Talk, and Sports formatted broadcast radio station, affiliated with Fox Sports Radio.

WONW is licensed to Defiance, Ohio, serving the Defiance/Bryan/Napoleon/Paulding area. WONW is owned and operated by Clear Channel Communications.


WONW has been on the air in Defiance since 1948 under the ownership of Tri-State Broadcasting, Inc.

It was in 1989 when WONW changed ownership for the first time when they were acquired by Maumee Valley Broadcasting, which at the time, owned now-sister station WNDH. Maumee Valley Broadcasting would later acquire now-sister FM station WZOM in 1994.

WONW would be sold for the third time back in 2000 to now-current owner Clear Channel Communications. In 2000, WONW's format changed from country to Adult Standards. It would remain the format until 2006, when WONW would become a news/sports/talk station, a format they used briefly in 1998 before returning for a brief time to country until 2000, when Clear Channel acquired WONW.

Today, WONW brings talk personalities from around the country, and a locally produced talk show. Several years ago, the station dropped its standards music programming to become an all news/talk outlet.
