WRNS-FM is an FM radio station located in Kinston, North Carolina in the United States.

Its format is a mixture of mainstream and classic country.[citation needed]

Broadcasting at 95.1 MHz, the station has a non-directional signal of 100,000 watts, that reaches "from the capital to the coast". The station has served Kinston and eastern North Carolina since the early 1960s, when it was WFTC-FM. At one time, it was the only country station in the area and had one of the highest market shares of any station.[1] Known for its generosity, the station has held a radiothon for St. Jude Children's Hospital annually for the past 5 years. The station is constantly ranked as the #1 station in its market by Arbitron.

WRNS is also broadcast on AM 960 using a 5 kW day omni pattern and at night a 1 kW signal with three towers directional to the south east.

The AM site is located in Kinston, and FM site is located on channel 12s tower north of Trenton, NC. Studios are located in New Bern.
