WBTC is an AM radio station in Uhrichsville, Ohio, USA, broadcasting on 1540 kHz with a news/talk format. It is the sister station of WNPQ (FM). The station was founded in 1963 by James Natoli and is held in the name of his company, Tuscarawas Broadcasting.

WBTC features two locally-oriented programs on weekdays: Dial-and-Deal with J.R. Richards from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m, and Dial-and-Speak conducted by Dr. Andrea Fanti - the only call-in radio show in Tuscarawas County - from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The station also carries The Jim Rome Show and The Sean Hannity Show, and is an affiliate of Fox Sports Radio for evenings and weekends.

Unlike most radio stations in the Northeastern United States assigned to the clear-channel frequency of 1540 kHz (all of whom must sign off at sunset to protect KXEL in Waterloo, Iowa and/or ZNS-1 in Nassau, Bahamas) WBTC has 5 watts of night power assigned, but signs off nightly at 9:00 p.m., give or take live sports play-by-play events.

WBTC also offers on-line streaming from its web page.
