WJHM History
WJHM began as WMFJ-FM in 1967.  WMFJ-FM was the sister station of WMFJ-AM 1450

In 1984, former Abell Communications management team from S&F Communications purchased WDOQ through a management buy-out from Abell before it was sold to Duffy Communications and later Beasley Broadcast Group. In 1996, OmniAmerica entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement  with Beasley FM Acquisition Corp. to acquire WJHM.  A Local Marketing Agreement was entered for WJHM with Beasley. Beasley made available to OmniAmerica substantially all of the broadcast time of the station pending the consummation of the transactions. OmniAmerica retained Chancellor to provide programming consulting for the station.

Today at 10:19AM, CBS Radio’s WJHM-FM continued its evolution as a contemporary music station by introducing its new name 101.9 AMP RADIO.  The station will continue to feature “All the Hits” from today’s popular artists including Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Rihanna, One Direction, Miley Cyrus, Bruno Mars, and Katy Perry, among others. The pop station had previously been known as 102 JAMZ. “This is the next step to better strengthen our brand as a pop music station,” says Bobby Smith, Program Director of the All New 101.9 AMP RADIO.  “Exciting energy and the pulse of today’s pop music is what drives 101.9, and with our new AMP RADIO branding we’ve positioned ourselves to more closely reflect those traits.  We are thrilled about the station’s transformation and know listeners will be, too.”  Added Dave Robbins, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Orlando, “WJHM has always been a highly attractive format for young adult listeners looking to discover new music.  This latest development will increase the station’s already powerful reach with advertisers and listeners on air, online and through our mobile platforms.”
