WNAW (1230 AM) is a radio station broadcasting an Adult Contemporary format. Licensed to North Adams, Massachusetts, United States, the station serves northern Berkshire County. The station is owned by Townsquare Media (through licensee subsidiary Townsquare Media Pittsfield License, LLC), and features programming from ABC News Radio.[2]

In August 2013, Gamma Broadcasting reached a deal to sell its Berkshire County radio stations, including WNAW, to Reed Miami Holdings;[3] the sale was canceled on December 30, 2013.[4] In October 2016, Gamma agreed to sell its stations to Galaxy Communications;[5] that sale also fell through, and in 2017 the stations were acquired by Townsquare Media.[6]
