WTJH is an AM broadcasting station licensed to the city of East Point, Georgia, USA, broadcasting on the frequency of 1260 kHz with 5,000 Watts of power during daytime hours, and only 39 Watts of power during nighttime hours with a non-directional antenna pattern. The station serves the Atlanta radio market. WTJH's programming consists of Gospel Music and Christian religious programs.

WTJH is owned by (Bishop) Levi E. Willis Sr. through Willis Broadcasting Company[1] with license holder Christian Broadcasting of East Point, Inc. In 2004, WTJH's owner Levi E. Willis Sr. and Willis Broadcasting had been in violation of a number of technical and public safety rules enforced by the Federal Communications Commission.[2] The dispute was eventually settled in 2004 through sale of property held by the company.[2]

In December 2009 and again in March 2010, the station filed letters and applications to the Federal Communications Commission for the station to go silent. The FCC approved the request but the station must come back on the air by November 30, 2010 or the broadcast license may be revoked.
