Programming and corporate history

1011 FM

When WRFK-FM 1065 was planning to sign off as an NPR station in March 1988, it was clear that a new NPR station must be found Commonwealth Public Broadcasting Corporation, owners of WCVE-TV and WCVW-TV, applied for and received, a license to temporarily broadcast at 1011 until a suitable permanent frequency could be found From March 1988 to October 1989, 1011 was the home of WCVE-FM and NPR After WCVE-FM moved to a permanent home at 889, the 1011 frequency went dark[5][6][7][8] [9]


In December 1968, WDYL signed on first as a country station, then later as a religious station, where it operated on 921 FM until 1995[10] Throughout its first stage of operation, WDYL-FM was a Christian music and ministry station, focusing on Contemporary Christian music WDYL also was home to several sports teams, such as VCU basketball, VMI football, Virginia Tech football and basketball, and the Richmond Renegades pro hockey team

In a complicated series of events, on November 8, 1995, WDYL moved to 1057 to allow WCDX which was on 927 FM at the time to move closer to the city with more power on 921 The 1011 frequency was allotted to Chester the former city of license of 921[11]

In September 1998, Sinclair Telecable sold the 1011 frequency to Hoffman, who moved the WDYL call sign and format to 1011 and traded the 1057 frequency to Sinclair Sinclair then signed off WSMJ, which had been on 1011 doing a smooth jazz format, and debuted the country-formatted WJRV on their newly purchased 1057 frequency[12]

WDYL then continued on 1011 with Christian music On July 16, 1999, Hoffman signed off the original Christian station, and sold the dark 1011 frequency to Radio One, who brought it back as modern rock as "Y101" on October 13, 1999, to fill the void after WBZU flipped to oldies[13][14][15] In 2001, Radio One sold WDYL to Cox Radio[16]

On September 1, 2009, WDYL moved to 1009 FM, and kept the "Y101" moniker[17]

On April 23, 2010, WDYL began redirecting listeners to WMXB, which flipped to adult album alternative "1037 The River" the previous day This led to rumors of a possible format change Six days later, on April 29, at 2 pm, after playing "Good Riddance Time of Your Life" by Green Day, WDYL flipped to Rhythmic Top 40, branded as "Hot 1009" The first song on "Hot" was "Rude Boy" by Rihanna[18] On May 6, WDYL changed call letters to WHTI to match the "Hot" branding

On January 6, 2012, at Midnight, WHTI shifted to Mainstream Top 40, while retaining the "Hot" moniker[19][20]

On July 20, 2012, Cox Radio, Inc announced the sale of WHTI and 22 other stations to SummitMedia for $6625 million The sale was consummated on May 3, 2013[21][22]

On May 7, 2014, WHTI began redirecting listeners to new translator W291CL, which began simulcasting WHTI via WURV-HD2 After a 15-day simulcasting period, "Hot" officially moved to W291CL on May 22, and 1009 FM began stunting with nature sounds[23] At 8 am on May 23, 2014, WHTI flipped to Soft AC, branded as "Easy 1009" The first song on "Easy" was "Easy" by The Commodores[24][25]

On January 27, 2016, WHTI flipped to Classic Hits, branded as "Star 1009" Bill Bevins and Shelly Perkins continued to host the morning show[26][27] The station's call letters changed to WJSR on February 9, 2016

On October 24, 2018, at 6AM, after playing "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds, WJSR dumped its classic hits format after two-and-a-half years and flipped to adult hits as “1009 Jack FM” The first song on Jack FM was “Rock and Roll All Nite” by Kiss[28]

WJSR is licensed by the FCC to broadcast in the HD Radio hybrid format[29][30]
