KWLE (1340 AM) is a radio station that plays an Adult contemporary music format. Licensed to Anacortes, Washington, United States, it serves the Skagit County, Washington area. The station is currently owned by Harinder Singh and Gurpal Garcha, through licensee New Age Media Ltd.

They also broadcast local Anacortes sporting events. It is mostly heard in the Skagit County area.[2]

KWLE was formerly KLKI, playing standards similar to Seattle station KIXI. The format change in December 2007 angered many loyal listeners, who argued that they no longer had a local outlet to hear "Standards".[3]

The station is also simulcast on KRPA Oak Harbor, Washington.
