WJOM is a radio station which is part of the Smile FM radio network. In July 2006, it began broadcasting from Eagle, just west of Lansing with 4.3 kW. WJOM operated as a repeater of the WLGH signal until May 21, 2010. Because it operates from a short, 130 foot tower it overlaps a portion of the coverage area of WLGH. WJOM also does not broadcast in stereo and has been noted intermittently broadcasting dead air.

A construction permit to more than double the power to 10 kW for a taller tower expired on June 12, 2009. A new application was filed the same day and approved on August 14, 2009, to increase power to 25 kW from the current tower.
