WPYB, 1130 AM, is a radio station in Benson, North Carolina—a small town between Raleigh and Fayetteville—that has a classic country music format.

WPYB was the first station that was owned by George G. Beasley, the founder of Beasley Broadcast Group. Mr. Beasley has long since sold WPYB, and the most recent ownership was Dunn-Benson Broadcasting, a local company owned by a husband and wife.

WPYB operates only during daylight hours to accommodate the signal of WBBR in New York City.

According to a listing in the SRDS Radio Advertising Source, Spring/Summer 2007, WPYB billed itself as "the best little station in the nation".
