WJCW is an AM radio station broadcasting in the Tri-Cities, Tennessee area under a News/Talk format. It broadcasts on AM frequency 910 kHz and is under ownership of Citadel Broadcasting. The station is licensed to Johnson City, and shares a studio with Citadel's other Tri-Cities stations in Gray, Tennessee.



WJCW originally signed on in 1938 as WJHL, owned by John H. Lancaster, Sr. It was the second radio station in the Tri-Cities. Under Lancaster's son and grandson, the station spawned an FM station (now WQUT) and a television station (still under the WJHL-TV calls).

WJHL-AM was eventually sold later to James C. Wilson (son of the founder of the area's first radio station, WOPI) and renamed WJCW.[1] Rocky Stone was named General Manager in 1973 and transformed it to the number #1 am station and its sister station FM 101.5 "WQUT" to the number one AOR station in the south. Rocky Stone died in 1980 and left Tri-Cities Broadcasting #1 in all the ratings slots. In 1990, it became the Tri-Cities' first news/talk station.

In 2005, "Hello Tri-Cities with Tom Taylor" aired in the mornings on WJCW and WKIN.[2]


WJCW airs a local morning show entitled Thinking Out Loud as well as Mike Gallagher, The Rush Limbaugh Show, The Sean Hannity Show, Mark Levin, Dennis Miller, Jim Bohannon, Lars Larson and Dave Graveline. The station also carries Imus in the Morning through a link on its Web site, although not over the air. WJCW also airs specially-built replays of Limbaugh, Hannity and Levin during the weekends in their regular weekday time slots.
