WJIM-AM (Lansing, MI)

WJIM (1240 AM) is a radio station licensed to Lansing, Michigan broadcasting a news-talk format. WJIM began broadcasting in 1934 on 1210 kHz with 250 watts daytime and 100 watts at night, under the ownership of Harold Gross and his company, Gross Telecasting. According to local legend, Gross won the license--the oldest continually operated commercial license in Lansing--in a card game. He named the station after his son Jim, who would become the station's general manager from the 1960s through the sale of the station in 1985 to Liggett Communications. Lansing's first radio station, WREO, folded in 1927. In 1941 WJIM moved to 1240 kHz with 250 watts as a part of the North American Radio Broadcasting Agreement. WJIM is currently under ownership of Townsquare Media. It is also the flagship station of the Michigan Talk Network. Source
