WJOJ is a FM radio station and a part of the Smile FM radio network. It began broadcasting in the summer of 2001 on 89.7.

WJOJ, officially owned by Northland Community Broadcasters (aka Superior Communication and Michigan Community Radio), is licensed to Rust Township, Michigan. In 2007 the station was experiencing tower leasing issues, therefore, on March 28, 2007 the station requested permission from the FCC to move to a tower about 10 miles west in Curran. This was granted in July 2007, however, since the leasing issue was resolved in June 2007 the construction permit will probably be abandoned.

In November 2007 WJOJ filed an application with the FCC to exchange its community of license with sister station WSFP. This was approved on September 14, 2010, changing WJOJ officially form Harrisville to Rust Twp. This allows WSFP to move its transmitter and increase power.
