WETC is an AM radio station in the United States of America. It is licensed to the cities of Wendell and Zebulon, North Carolina and broadcasts on 540 kHz. WETC's call letters were said to stand for "We Entertain Tobacco Country". It was a long-time country music station. In 1992 it became the first radio station to target the Research Triangle's Spanish-speaking community. It went completely Spanish by the late 1990s. WETC was owned by East Wake Broadcasting and later Carolina Regional Broadcasting before being sold to Prieto Communications in 2004.

Prieto Communications sold WETC to Marta Sanchez's Sanchez Broadcasting Corporation for consideration of the forgiveness of $1.45 million in debt; the transaction was consummated on January 4, 2013.

WETC's programming is also heard on WDUR.[1]

On March 25, 2016 WETC was granted an FCC construction permit to increase day power to 10,000 watts.[2]
