WIOO, known as "Country Gold 1000", is a 1000-watt daytime only AM radio station licensed to Carlisle, Pennsylvania. It broadcasts a non-directional signal on 1000 kHz, and signed on the air in 1965. The call letters stand for the station's former long-time slogan, "W-100," referring to its position on the AM dial.

WIOO played contemporary music for most of its history. During the late 1960s and early to mid-1970s, it was a successful Top 40 station which, despite being a daytimer, competed with Harrisburg stations WKBO and WFEC for the teenage audience. (Source: http://www.reelradio.com/rjh/index.html)

For the past seven years, WIOO has operated with a "country gold" format, playing country music from approximately five to fifty years ago. It is affiliated with ABC (the former Information network) and with Motor Racing Network and Performance Racing Network for extensive NASCAR coverage.

The station operates at full power from local sunrise to local sunset, and at reduced power (approximately 30 watts) from local sunset until 45 minutes later, when it must sign off to protect the clear channel of WMVP Chicago from skywave interference. WIOO currently simulcasts the majority of its programming onto WEEO (AM), a 460 watt AM station on 1480 kHz licensed to Shippensburg, Pennsylvania.

WIOO has a long-standing history of great morning personalities dating back to the mid-1960s. They include Bob Hamilton, Dick Raymond, R.J. Harris, Jim (J.J) Jefferson and Marissa Osborne, Ben Barber, Jack Wagner, Scott Dinato, Kirk Wise (Wise Guy), Dave Eddy, Larry Flood, and currently on the air veteran broadcaster Craig Senior.
