WEJC is a non-commercial, contemporary Christian FM radio station licensed to serve White Star, Michigan with a transmitter at Auburn, Michigan. The station broadcasts on 88.3 MHz. It is owned by Superior Communications (aka Michigan Community Radio and Northland Community Broadcasters), in turn owned by Jennifer and Edward Czelada.
WEJC began broadcasting in 2001 as The Light. In June 2004 it merged with the other The Light and Joy FM stations owned by Superior Communications to form Smile FM. WEJC operates as a satellite of WHYT. Programming with local inserts originates from WLGH in Lansing.
The station originally broadcast with 30 kW from a tower near Gladwin. A construction permit to increase power to 80 kW was granted in 2004. In December 2006 the station applied for a modification of its construction permit to move the station to Auburn, Michigan and operate with 55 kW from a 374 foot tower. On August 2, 2007, the modification was approved and the station began immediately the relocation to the new tower. On August 31, 2007 they began broadcasting from the new six bay antenna with 2 kW. On October 24, 2007 the station put the new transmitter on line. The site provides a strong signal in the Midland, Bay City and Saginaw areas.
On March 30, 2010, WEJC was granted a construction permit to increase effective radiated power to 80 kW from the present tower location. Unlike the current signal, the new one will also broadcast with the same power horizontal, which would improve reception in the Tri-Cities area.
