WJEZ (98.9 FM, "Classic Hits 98.9") is a radio station licensed to the community of Dwight, Illinois, USA, and serving the greater Livingston County, Illinois, area. The station is owned by Cumulus Media and licensed to Cumulus Licensing LLC, which purchased the station from Townsquare Media.[2] It airs a classic hits music format.[3] In addition, the station superserves the area with news and information in addition to religious programming on Sundays and oldies music on Fridays.

The station was assigned the WJEZ call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on May 16, 2003.[1]

WJEZ broadcasts the Chicago Cubs. Whenever the Cubs were playing the St. Louis Cardinals, sister stations WJBC and WJBC-FM carried the Cardinals radio broadcasts as well, making it so that the two sister stations carried the same game, but with different broadcasts. WJEZ broadcasts high school football games, along with WJBC's Friday night football show.

On November 29, 2012, WJEZ changed their format from adult contemporary to classic hits.[4]
