WINE (940 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a sports format. Licensed to Brookfield, Connecticut, USA, it serves the Danbury area. The station is currently owned by Cumulus Licensing Llc. In the 1970s and early 80s WINE was a Top 40 station. As the audience migrated to the FM band, WINE became a full-service adult contemporary station.
In the 90's WINE became part of an all-news network that included WNLK, which both became newstalk a few years later. After being sold to Cumulus, WINE spent a few years as a nostalgia station, along with its now sister station, WPUT (Brewster, NY). Both became part of ESPN Radio 24/7 but switched to CBS Radio on January 2, 2013. WINE's nighttime signal is very weak at 4 watts. WPUT airs daytime only.
WINE's longtime competitor is 800 AM WLAD in Danbury. WLAD is now a newstalk station. WINE's FM sister station is rock station, WRKI, as well as Patterson, New York's WDBY, which has a booster station in Danbury.
In December 2012, WPUT and WINE_(AM) became CBS Sports Radio's 940SportsRadio
