WCRJ (88.1 FM) is a Christian contemporary music formatted radio station serving the Jacksonville area owned by the Educational Media Foundation, relaying programming from the Air 1 network.

History[edit]

Prior to 1993, WCRJ was WNCM-FM.[1] The station switched from country music to talk radio in 1995.[2]

88.1 was originally owned by The River Educational Media; until 2011, it was home to The Promise, which was first launched by Concord Media Group on 106.5 FM and was later purchased by Salem Communications. Salem then sold the signal to Cox Radio in 2006 (in which they flipped that station to a simulcast of WOKV), and The River agreed to take the Promise name and format, under a lease management agreement with The Promise Educational Media Inc.

In 2011, The River sold WCRJ to Educational Media Foundation, which switched the station to its satellite-based K-LOVE network on May 1, 2011.
