WABJ (1490 AM, "NewsTalk 1490") is a radio station broadcasting a news/ talk radio format. Licensed to Adrian, Michigan, it first began broadcasting in 1946. WABJ is noted as a "springboard station" for some of the most well-known names in broadcasting. It has launched the careers of such notables as Phil Donahue, Jerry Keil, Rich Hoffer, Gary Fullhart, Mickey Morgret-Goldberg, and Joe Elardo.

WABJ has functioned as a full-service station for Adrian and Lenawee County since it signed on. Current owner Friends Communications has owned the station since 1990. Music ( adult contemporary or MOR in nature) was phased out in the early 1990s in favor of the station's current talk format.
