History[edit]

The station went on the air as WBNL-FM on 1979-03-22. On 2001-05-15, the station changed its call sign to WYXY, on 2005-11-11 to the current WEJK.[3]

From the late 90s to the fall of 2003, the station was known as "Y 107 - Classic Hits." In November 2003, South Central Communications, the station operator switched to a Christmas Holiday format. On December 26, 2003, the station became "107.1 WYXY - Today's Christian Music." This was the Salem Radio Networks format that was based out of Nashville, Tennessee, and broadcast on the FISH stations across the country. On Friday, October 7, 2005, at 12:00 PM, the station left the Contemporary Christian format and became "107.1 JACK-FM." JACK is the format that originated in Canada in 2002. It plays a shuffle of music from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and a few of today's hits.
