Description:

WJSM operated from a small three room apartment on South Locust Street in Martinsburg from 1976 until 1982. Offices and studio's were then moved adjacent to the home of one of the owners, Larry Walters, approximately three miles east of Martinsburg. The stations pioneered the use of satellite delivered programs by joining the Satellite Radio Network in the early 80's. A network which delivered programs via satellite instead of on reel to reel tapes. This network was ahead of its time and folded several years later. Satellite programming is a major source of programming for most Christian Radio stations today. WJSM-FM brought the first 24 hour a day Christian programming to our section of the state in the early 1980's. There were no Christian Stations broadcasting during the night time hours and this service was very well received. It seems that our programming was very effective in bringing some peace of mind to those who were troubled and could not sleep. God's Word in music works in wonderful ways anytime of the day, but especially during the quiet, sometimes lonely, hours of the night. The WJSM Stations were sold in 1989 to Martinsburg Broadcasting, Inc. from Sherwood Hawley and Larry Walters. Larry Walters was the President of the corporation, and remains as its President to date. Sherwood passed away on July 27th, 1993. In 1994, the WJSM Broadcast Center was constructed along Rebecca Furnace Road in Huston Township, Martinsburg. The Broadcast Center houses the WJSM main studio, two full production studios, an engineering department, an audio library, offices, with a conference and meeting room on the lower level. It all began with a promise in 1965. WJSM - the little station with a big dream -made a solemn promise to its small audience. "Come over and help us, and WJSM will always be a Christian station. They did and the station and audience grew! WJSM now has the most loyal and largest audience ever listening today. And it all started with a promise. A promise WJSM has kept since 1965.
