WLWL (770 AM) is a radio station broadcasting an urban oldies music format with an emphasis on beach music that is licensed to Rockingham, North Carolina, USA. While its effective coverage range is the Sandhills area of Central North and South Carolina, its signal reaches as far as Charlotte, 75 miles to the west. The station is currently owned by Sandhills Broadcasting.

WLWL uses airchecks from New York's WABC that feature the words "seventy seven" in jingle form to promote its frequency of 770 kHz.

WLWL broadcasts only during daylight hours, to avoid interference with the WABC from New York, which has a clear-channel license for the same frequency.

WLWL is not connected in any way with WLW, a radio station with a clear-channel license that broadcasts from Cincinnati at 700 kHz.
