History[edit]

At midnight on Thursday, November 18, 2004, a major station shake-up occurred when Radio One shifted Urban Adult Contemporary "104.7 Kiss FM" from 104.7 to "Magic 105.7" WJMO which disappeared from the Richmond airwaves, and Urban Gospel "Praise 99.3" moved to it strongest signal 104.7.[3] The new "Kiss FM" began simulcasting on 99.3. It took its new call letters WKJM on November 22, 2004, then the calls went back to WJMO briefly until it finally changed to WKJS on December 14, 2004. [4] On November 25, 2005, (approximately 1 year to date since it took its last calls) 99.3 changed call letters from WPZZ to WKJM.[5][6]
