WNWK (1260 AM, "Sabrosa 1260") was a radio station broadcasting in Spanish in Newark, Delaware. The station was owned by Jose Roberto Ekonomo and Aida Esperanza Ekonomo, according to the FCC records.

The station was originally licensed as WNRK in the 1960s. In the 1980s, it had an adult contemporary format with an emphasis on sports. After 2000 the station changed formats and call signs frequently, operating at various times as WAMS, WNWK and WRJJ. Ultimately the station made a deal with Salem Communications to go off the air so that Salem could improve the signal of WWRC in Washington, D.C., which operates on the same frequency. The station's license was cancelled by the FCC on March 9, 2012.
