WTHE (1520 AM) is an American radio station broadcasting a Gospel music format, licensed to the New York City suburb of Mineola, New York. Since 1968, the station has been owned by Universal Broadcasting of New York.[1]

WTHE broadcasts during daytime hours only, from local sunrise to sunset in order to protect WWKB in Buffalo, a clear-channel station on the same frequency that can frequently be heard in the New York City area after dark. WTHE's programming, however, is available 24 hours daily on its webstream.
