WAKY (620 kHz AM) is a classic hits radio station in the Louisville, Kentucky metropolitan area. It is currently owned by William Walters, through licensee W & B Broadcasting Co., Inc. The station used to share a significant portion of Spanish programming with sister station WTUV-FM (105.7 FM) until WTUV-FM was sold to UB Louisville and became English-language sports radio station WHBE-FM. The original station call letters, under different owners, were WTMT-AM (1958-2010).

The station was assigned the WAKY call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on April 1, 2015. On May 3, 2015, the format was changed to a simulcast of WAKY-FM, rebroadcasting their classic hits format. The WAKY call letters are evocative of the famous WAKY-AM (790 kHz), a nationally influential Top 40 music station in Louisville (under other ownership, including McLendon Radio and LIN Broadcasting) from 1958-1986. Currently, the WAKY-AM/FM studios are south of the Ft. Knox Army Reservation in Radcliff, Kentucky, about 27 miles south of Louisville. The WAKY-AM transmitter and antenna are located in the Oak Park area of Jeffersonville, Indiana.
