The WJYJ calls are gone from 90.5 FM in Fredericksburg, VA, a moderately-strong signal 37 miles south of me. According to RadioINSIGHT via a retweet by VARTV, the station is now WPIR. The former WPIR, co-owned 88.1 FM in Hickory, NC, is now WJYJ.
The call letter swap makes sense. 90.5 FM is a simulcast of nearby 89.9 WPER Culpeper, VA, a Christian Contemporary station known as “Positive Hits PER,” and the WPIR calls are very similar to WPER’s. 88.1 FM airs the same format as “Joy FM,” a name which befits their new WJYJ calls. 90.5 was also known as “Joy FM” prior to it joining WPER’s wide circle of simulcasts scattered throughout the upper half of Virginia, but the signal never updated its calls to match its new identity until now.
I have updated my Local FM Stations page with the new callsign.
