WJMJ’s mission is to evangelize, educate, inform and inspire. WJMJ accomplishes its mission by providing values oriented programming including inspirational and classical music programs, news breaks (local, state, national, international and religious), and educational and public affairs programs that focus on both local and national issues of concern and/or interest to its constituents in the communities that it serves.
WJMJ Radio is an educational, non-commercial FM radio station licensed to Saint Thomas Seminary and is operated by ORTV, Inc. WJMJ was founded in 1976 by the late Archbishop John F. Whealon as the first archdiocesan operated radio station in the United States, and was the result of a vision brought forth by the Second Vatican Council. It was Archbishop Whealon’s goal to create a radio station that would offer the Good News of Christ to a wider listening audience through a format of inspiring messages and pleasant music. WJMJ’s first broadcast was on Christmas Eve, December 24, 1976.
On October 5, 2018, Archbishop Leonard P. Blair pressed the button that raised the transmission power of the station’s new transmitter to 100% as allowed by its Federal Communications Commission’s license. WJMJ’s new transmitter broadcasts both the traditional FM signal on 88.9 FM as well as three digital HD Radio channels. Listeners with HD Radio receivers in their cars, homes or businesses will hear a superior quality sound on HD-1, the channel simultaneously carrying WJMJ’s music and information mix.
On the other HD channels, listeners can hear Catholic programming from EWTN Global Catholic Radio. The EWTN programs are in Spanish on WJMJ HD-2 and in English on WJMJ HD-3. This allows WJMJ to better serve an audience that wants to hear traditional Catholic programming and Connecticut’s growing Hispanic population. WJMJ extends its broadcast reach with repeater translators located in Hamden at 93.1 FM and New Haven at 107.1 FM, and also broadcasts in HD in Fairfield on WSHU at 91.1 FM HD-3. With its broadcast network, WJMJ is able to reach and serve a vast listening audience throughout central and south western Connecticut and south central Massachusetts; and globally with its live Internet stream.
