WJDX-FM (105.1 FM) is a classic hits station in Kosciusko, Mississippi, serving the Jackson, Mississippi area as "105.1 The River". It is owned by iHeartMedia, Inc. (formerly Clear Channel Communications until September 2014). From October 1998 to March 2003 WQJQ was a Jammin' Oldies station. Its studios are located in Northwest Jackson and the transmitter site is east of Canton.
On January 24, 2011, WQJQ relaunched as "Oldies 105.1" and in the process changed its call letters to WJDX-FM. The original WJDX-FM call letters were on a progressive rock station at 102.9 (now WMSI-FM) from the late 1960s through the early 1970s. The station changed its calls to WZZQ in 1973 and would evolve from progressive rock to a locally produced AOR music format.
In November 2013, WJDX flipped to its usual Christmas music format for the holidays. However, it changed its name to "FM 105.1: The Christmas Station," possibly meaning a change coming after the holidays. On December 26, 2013 WJDX-FM rebranded as "The River", playing the hits of the 1970s, 1980s, and occasionally the early 1990s.
