WNWN-FM (98.5 FM, "Win 98-5") is a radio station broadcasting a country music format. Licensed to Coldwater, Michigan with studios in Battle Creek, it first began broadcasting in 1950 under the WTVB-FM call sign at 98.3 on the FM dial and spent most of its early existence as a simulcast of sister station WTVB before changing to its current calls, format, and frequency.

Win 98-5 is consistently one of the top-rated radio stations in the Battle Creek market.

WNWN-FM programming was formerly heard on translator 95.5 W238AL in Portage, allowing the station's programming to better penetrate the Kalamazoo market. The translator now simulcasts WNWN/1560.
