WOND (1400 AM) is an American news-talk radio station from Pleasantville, New Jersey, broadcasting to the Atlantic City, New Jersey, radio market. In the 1960s it was a Top 40 radio station, and its morning show was hosted by Bob Weems, one of the area's most well-remembered DJs. The station was home to the long-running Pinky's Corner, hosted by Pinky Kravitz. The show has called WOND home for 53 years.

WOND is the leading news-talk station in southern New Jersey. It is one of the Atlantic City market's legacy radio stations, first going on the air in July 1950. As of January 2017, weekday programming on WOND includes The Jim Bohannon Show, Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, America in the Morning, The Don Williams Show, Barbara Altman's Front Porch and The South Jersey Edition with David Spatz. The station features locally produced news, weather and traffic. Weekend programming includes a mix of local programming like Jim MacMillan's Weekend Journal, The Marc Berman Show and Your Neighborhood Garage. Syndicated programming includes Handel on the Law, In The Garden with Ron Wilson, and The Kim Komando Show.[1]

Jessica Savitch began her career as a teen DJ on a show called Teen Talk in 1962.[2] She used "Wild Weekend" as a theme song. She called herself "Wonda" for a short time. The station also launched the career of Tom Lamaine, long-time radio personality at WIP in Philadelphia and then at KYW-TV.
