WFIS (1600 AM) was a radio station broadcasting a News Talk Information format to the Fountain Inn/Simpsonville, South Carolina, USA area. The station was owned by Timeless Media, Inc.

On January 2, 2014, the station's licensee surrendered WFIS' license to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for cancellation. The licensee indicated that the surrender was related to their pending application to increase the broadcast power of co-owned station WTZQ in Henderson, North Carolina.[1] On January 3, 2014, the FCC cancelled the station's license.
