WCDL is an AM broadcasting radio station licensed to Carbondale, Pennsylvania.

The station flipped formats from Adult Standards to a mix of Tropical and Spanish language adult contemporary [1] format in August 2007 [2] branded as "Caliente" (translation from Spanish into English as "Hot") to serve the region's growing Hispanic population.[3] Former sister station WNAK, 730 kHz, located in Nanticoke, started simulcasting WCDL programming in October 2007.[1]

In late 2008 WCDL returned to the Adult Standards format,[4] simulcasting with WNAK 730 kHz under the slogan "The Greatest Music of All Time".

As of 2011, WCDL was simulcasting with WICK and WYCK.
