Little About Us
WJUC ("The Juice") is a commercial Urban contemporary music radio station in Swanton, Ohio, broadcasting to the Swanton, Ohio-Toledo, Ohio area on 107.3 FM.
WJUC, which began broadcasting in 1997, was the first African-American owned-and-operated radio station in the Toledo market and is one of the few radio stations in the area that is still locally owned and operated. "The Juice" began as a station playing a wide variety of musical styles appealing to African-American listeners, including rap, soul oldies, gospel music, and blues. Today, the station's playlist consists almost exclusively of hip-hop and urban contemporary hits, aside from a Sunday-morning gospel music show.
WJUC is the brainchild of Charles "Charlie Chuck" Welch, a former disc jockey at the now-defunct WKLR-FM (now WKKO). Welch is said to be proud that his station is still live and local and has reportedly declined offers from larger broadcasters to buy his station.
"Today, the station's playlist consists almost exclusively of classic Hip-Hop, Throwbacks, and some brand new music to keep things fresh!"
