WVIP (93.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a World Ethnic format. Licensed to New Rochelle, New York, USA, it serves the New York metropolitan area. Formerly known as WRTN-93.5 and renamed WVIP, the station is currently owned by Hudson-Westchester Radio, Inc. and features programing from Music of Your Life. This station airs Caribbean programming.

For many years from the 1950s, the call letters WVIP were used for an AM station (1310) and FM station (106.3) in the northern Westchester County village of Mt. Kisco.[1] In 2006, William O'Shaughnessy's Whitney Radio Group renamed its WRTN/93.5 WVIP.[2] In July 2010, WVIP moved its transmitter to the top of the Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, giving it a much stronger signal in New York City, northern New Jersey, southern Connecticut, Long Island and Rockland County.

On July 12, 2010, WVIP began broadcasting in HD; its HD2 subchannel broadcasts its sister AM station, WVOX, while its HD3 subchannel offers a feed of continuous country music programming.
