Ohio Valley Peace radio WEJP-LP 107.1 FM

Community radio for Wheeling
In 2013, Ohio Valley Peace applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for a Low Power FM (LPFM) radio construction permit which we received in October 2014. In October 2017 we received our broadcast license and began broadcasting from our transmitter on Grandview Street in Wheeling (next the water tower and across the street from Grow Ohio Valley).

In 2018 we insulated the 15 x 20 foot block building and added “new” siding and roof using donated recycled materials. We were pleased to find that with the new insulation, the heat generated by the transmitter alone keep the building above 45 degrees during the winter of 2019.

Our next big project is to equip the building to use as a studio and learn to make good use of it. We invite anyone with ideas and/or expertise who would like to help to contact us at jmrrpress@gmail.com. We are also looking former local programming.

Our weekly program guide can be found in the photos section of the WEJP facebook page.
