WOJL is an Adult Hits formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Louisa, Virginia, serving Orange and Louisa counties. WOJL is owned and operated by Piedmont Communications, Inc.[1]

History[edit]

WOJL signed on the air on July 8, 1980 with the callsign WLSA, carrying a Country format.

At midnight on May 27, 2004, WLSA dropped "105 Country" after being bought by Piedmont Communications and switched to oldies as "Oldies 105". A month later on June 28, the callsign was switched to WOJL, which is now broadcast in HD.

At noon on July 2, 2005, the format was switched again, this time to Adult Hits under the branding "Sam FM". WOJL continues to use the Dial Global satellite "Sam" service today.
