WOJO (105.1 FM) "La Que Buena 105.1" is a radio station broadcasting a regional Mexican format. Licensed to Evanston, Illinois, USA, the station serves the Chicago area. The station is currently owned by Tichenor License Corporation. The station is also broadcast on HD radio. As of August 2011, WOJO carries a Spanish contemporary Christian/praise and worship music format on its HD2 side channel, and a simulcast of Spanish news/talk sister station WRTO-AM on its HD3 side channel.
Radio Maria Chicago, a Spanish language unit of Radio Maria USA, a Catholic radio network is also broadcast on WOJO's FM subcarrier. Radio Maria Chicago commenced broadcasting on the WOJO subcarrier and online on December 8, 2008.
The station began broadcasting as WEAW in 1947, named for owner Edward A. Wheeler. The call sign officially became WEAW-FM in 1953 when a companion AM station was launched. WEAW-FM carried a variety of programs aimed at the Evanston community and brokered ethnic broadcasts, but most of its revenue came from leasing its subcarriers to Muzak and other users.
In 1969 one of station owner Wheeler's companies secured the rights to manage the transmission tower atop the new John Hancock Center in Chicago. WEAW-FM began transmitting from the Hancock in 1970. In 1971 and 1972 the station was the flagship of the Chicago White Sox radio network. By late 1972 most of the station's programming was in Spanish, and its callsign was changed to WOJO. In 1983 WOJO was sold to Tichenor Media, which merged into current owner Univision Radio in 1997.
