WSJM (1400 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a news-talk format. Licensed to St. Joseph, Michigan, it first began broadcasting in 1956. Programming is mostly a simulcast with WSJM-FM except for a block of Fox Sports Radio programming during weekday evenings and for a significant part of weekend programming most of which also includes Fox Sports Radio.

Prior to its current News/Talk format, WSJM was a Full-Service Adult Contemporary radio station, with a mixture of pop and oldies music, local personalities, network and local newscasts, evening talk programming (Bruce Williams and Larry King) and play-by-play sports. For many years, the station's slogan was "The Spirit of the Southwest."

Before WSJM's 1984 format change to Full-Service A/C, it had a country music format called "The Best in the Country."

WSJM started simulcasting on 94.9 FM in early 2008. "The Coast", which had been on that frequency, then moved to 98.3 FM. The WCSY call letters were moved from 98.3 FM to 103.7 FM as part of this three station swap. The WSJM-FM call sign were temporarily placed on 98.3 FM until all moves were complete. "The Coast" changed call letters a few weeks later from "WCNF" to "WCXT".
