Effective today WJQK/Grand Rapids has changed it’s name from JQ99 to “Joy 99.3″…. Since 1987, the station was known as WJQ or JQ99. WJQK personality Ceci Labarge tells HisAir.Net, “from time to time we have been asked what WJQ or JQ stood for. The truthful answer…nothing. They needed to pick call letters and at that time they thought WJQ sounded the best. The staff at Joy99.3 wants everyone to know exactly what we are here for. We feel our new name allows us to be even more intentional about who we are being called to be. Sharing the Joy that only comes from our Savior Jesus Christ! There are no staff changes or music changes, just sharing JOY.” With the change the station launched a new website… joy99.com
