Northern Michigan's Information Station
WJML is Northern Michigan's Information Station. WJML has been a market leader in Northern Michigan talk and news for over 50 years and recently was acquired by new ownership in 2017. Now owned by Mitten News LLC, the radio stations include WJML AM-1110 Petoskey, WJNL AM-1210 in Traverse City, and 101.1 FM in Traverse City cover the entire northern Michigan area from Cadillac to Canada.
We started in 1966-George Romney was Governor, LBJ was President, and passions raged over Vietnam as bands like the Beatles and Rolling Stones rocked radio stations nationwide.
