WMAJ-FM (99.5 FM) is the call sign for the radio station broadcasting in Centre Hall, Pennsylvania serving the State College, Pennsylvania area. The station was formerly known as WLTS. The new call sign returns the station to its prior "Magic 99.5" moniker.

The FCC granted the change on September 25, 2007.[1]. The station is affiliated with the nearby WMAJ (AM) which is owned by Forever Broadcasting, the parent company of Forever Broadcasting, LLC[2].

History[edit]

Originally on 94.5, the WLTS call sign and format moved to 99.5 while 94.5 became WBHV. 99.5 was originally a class A station licensed to the town of Mount Union using the call sign WXMJ (Magic 99.5). When purchased by Forever Broadcasting the company applied for and was granted a change in the city of license to Centre Hall along with a change to a class B1 (25,000 watts equivalent) status. The transmitter site was moved to Tussey Mountain on the south side of State College. The FCC allowed this move because Backyard Broadcasting agreed to allow a shortspacing to its 99.3 WZXR Williamsport.
