Q: What does WSJS stand for?
A: This is a question we are asked a lot (which explains why we included the answer in our Frequently Asked Questions section). When the government started licensing radio stations, it was decided that the ones east of the Mississippi would be assigned call letters beginning with the letter "W". Those west of the Mississippi would begin with "K". In 1929, Douglas Lee approached Owen Moon (Publisher of the local newspapers) about starting a radio station. The station began broadcasting a year later, in 1930, with the call letters W-S-J-S which just happen to be the initials of the name of the newspapers - Winston-Salem Journal-Sentinel. Although the station was separated from the newspaper in 1969 when the Gray family sold the newspaper, the station retained the call letters "WSJS". Now, WSJS is firmly established as a servant to the community of Winston-Salem and surrounding cities and towns.
