Electrical upgrade may disrupt service
Guess what doesn't mix? Power outages and radio stations! On Tuesday, April 13th, our friends at Wood Electric are making important electrical upgrades to WJER's studios. As a result, there is a chance WJER will be off the air between the hours of 10am-3pm on Tuesday. Until we flip that switch, we won't know exactly what the result will be. So if you can't find us on AM 1450, 100.9FM or online at wjer.com after 10am tomorrow, hang in there and check back later in the day! Thank you for your understanding.
