WTOR (770 AM) is a daytime-only radio station licensed to Youngstown, New York, USA. The station is currently owned by Birach Broadcasting Corporation.[1][2] The station airs a primarily brokered multicultural programming format targeted primarily at the Greater Toronto Area in Canada. The station's 13,000-watt directional signal is, in fact, aimed almost completely into the province of Ontario (thus arguably making the station a border blaster).

The station's programming is primarily in Punjabi and Urdu, with some Serbian, Macedonian and Caribbean programming on weekends. WTOR is a daytime-only station, signing off at sunset to protect 50,000-watt clear-channel station WABC in New York City.

The WTOR call sign previously belonged to a station in Harwinton, Connecticut which now uses the call sign WSNG.
