WDOE is an AM/FM radio station located in Dunkirk, New York. It is owned by Alan Bishop and George Kimble, who also own sister station WBKX in Fredonia, and operates on a frequency of 1410 kHz. On December 7, 2012, WDOE began simulcasting on an FM translator at 94.9 MHz.

WDOE operates a mostly automated classic hits format from Waitt Radio Networks, with a local newsman, Dave Rowley. Dan Palmer hosts the morning show from 6:00-8:45 AM, and Dave hosts "Viewpoint," a daily 15-minute public affairs program. Also, Dave Thompson hosts a midday show from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM. In addition, the station broadcasts local high school football, basketball, baseball, and softball games, mainly for Dunkirk and Fredonia high schools.

On Saturdays, WDOE broadcasts the Chautauqua Brick Home Solutions Show from 8:00-8:30 AM, the Fundamental Wealth Management Show from 9:00-10:00 AM, and the nationally syndicated American Top 40: The 1970s from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM, local personality Tina Zboch hosts an hour-long polka show.

WDOE also serves as an affiliate of ABC News and Buffalo Bills football. Former Bills announcer Van Miller was one of the station's first employees, and former Bills public address announcer Danny Neaverth also worked at the station in the late 1950s.
