During most of 2013, WJIS was also simulcasted on 91.7 WFTI-FM in St. Petersburg; that station would cease operations in fall 2013, to allow for upgrades of adjacent channel WCIE and co-channel WJFH. The network also has two other stations in Alabama and Georgia.
WCIE broadcasts in the HD Radio format. On HD2, the station has The JOY FM Praise, a channel that features exclusively Christian praise songs. On HD3, the station has Lightforce Radio, a progressive youth music channel. Both can be listened to online or via The JOY FM phone app.
