WALS (102.1 FM) is an American radio station broadcasting a country music format. Licensed to Oglesby, Illinois, USA, the station serves the LaSalle-Peru area. The station is currently owned by Laco Radio and featured programing from Jones Radio Network until February 2007 when Jones programming was dropped in favor of local talent.[1][2]

History[edit]

The station was assigned the call sign WZLC on February 26, 1993. At first, it simulcast the country music format of co-owned WGLC (Mendota, Illinois). WZLC was put on the air to give WGLC coverage in the southern part of the La Salle/Peru area. On February 1, 1995, the station changed its call sign to the current WALS.[3] and started carrying separate country music programming.
