WACK (1420 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a news talk information format and licensed to Newark, New York, USA. The station is owned by Waynco Radio, Inc., and features programing from CNN Radio, ESPN Radio and Westwood One.[1]

WACK is the station where Lowell Paxson, later the founder of Home Shopping Network and PAX TV, began his broadcasting career.

Programming heard on WACK includes National Farm Report with Orion Samuelson, Farming America with Steve Alexander, America in the Morning with Jim Bohannon, a local morning show hosted by Dick Reeves and Rus Jeffrey, Last Night on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Dick Clark's Music Calendar, The Laura Ingraham Show, Dennis Miller, The Dave Ramsey Show, The Sean Hannity Show, On the House with the Carey Brothers, and American Standards By the Sea. Any time slots not filled by programming are filled with Yahoo! Sports Radio

Samuelson's and Alexander's programs are considered to be one show, which is given its own full half-hour time slot under the title "WACK Farm and Agribusiness Report".
