WJR (760 AM) is a commercial radio station in Detroit, Michigan, owned by Cumulus Media, with a news/talk format. Most of WJR's broadcast studios, along with its newsroom and offices, are in the Fisher Building in Detroit's New Center area. A tower atop the Fisher Building relays WJR's audio to the transmitter site, and at one time WJR-FM (currently WDVD) also used this tower. There is an additional satellite studio in the Wintergarden of the GM Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit.

WJR is a Class A clear channel station, operating with 50,000 watts, the maximum power for AM stations in the United States, and is Michigan's primary entry point station for the Emergency Alert System. At night it can be heard throughout much of eastern North America. WJR's 1934 transmitter building — which has been called "one of the best Art Deco transmitter buildings ever" — and transmitter tower are located off Sibley Road in Riverview, Michigan.

WJR programming is streamed via the web, and is simulcast on WDVD's 96.3 FM HD2 subchannel. WJR is also licensed to broadcast a digital hybrid (HD) signal.
