WLJS-FM (91.9 FM, "92J") is the student-run non-commercial educational college radio station of Jacksonville State University. The station was established for the purpose of giving students an environment in which they could learn to be radio broadcasters. WLJS is maintained by the JSU Department of Communication, which is also the parent organization of the campus newspaper, The Chanticleer, and the Mimosa yearbook. WLJS is located in Self Hall, home to JSU's Department of Communication.
WLJS-FM was first chartered on September 29, 1975, and currently operates under the branding "92-J". Broadcasting at 6,000 watts, the station is an auxiliary National Public Radio member station which provides the university and surrounding communities with news and music programming, and is the flagship station for all JSU major sporting events. In that capacity, the station broadcasts JSU football, baseball, softball, men's and women's basketball.
During the morning and mid-day weekdays, the station is mostly dedicated to programming from NPR and American Public Media, including Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Performance Today. Weekend public radio offerings include Car Talk, Sunday Baroque and Weekend Edition Sunday. At 11:00 am CST Monday through Friday the students of Jacksonville State University take over the broadcasting. From 11:00am-4:00pm the newest DJs play the station rotation, a collection of mainstream, indie, and local artists. At 5:00pm the Specialty Shows begin.
