Feedback Giveback Contest!

kristi : July 12, 2010 1:00 am : News, Promo

KRISTI LEIGH – Sometimes listeners ask me what I do at WJTL when I’m not DJing; and answering that question always reminds me how much I love my job! When I’m not on the radio, I spend time in our production rooms and on my office duties, which include contest planning (one of my favorite tasks)! We love giving our listeners prizes and brainstorming creative new ways to give stuff away! Eddie and I had a conversation recently about the blogs on our new website and the comments we have been receiving on them, which sparked another contest idea: to award a weekly prize just to say “thanks for commenting!” When it came to naming the contest, Eddie was fast and catchy as always: “Feedback Giveback!” We give back prizes for the feedback you give on our blogs!

How can you be eligible for the prizes?

-Keep up with our blogs!

-Leave a comment whenever you want!

-Every Monday, we’ll pick a winner and mail out a prize!

The New WJTL Site

Admin : April 26, 2010 6:49 am : News, Promo

EDDIE DANIELS – Well…here it is! What do you think?  Our pal Brian has been working on this new look for for quite a while now, and we hope you like it as much as we do. Personally, I love it!

Have a look around, and let us know what you think! You’ll find all of your favorite features from the old site are still here…they just look a lot cooler now and in many respects are much easier to find. For example, you can now listen live by clicking the little “speaker” icon near the top of the front page instead of clicking through to the old “listen live” page.

You can also stay connected to the Missions Blog and News Blogs (and the blogs of the WJTL gang) from the front page as well. No more having to click through to other sites…it’s all right here!

You can also feel a little safer about watching the JTL videos. All of them are fully viewable right here within the confines of the WJTL site, so you don’t have to worry about 3rd party videos you don’t want to see sneaking their way in.

There are a lot more cool things to discover about the new WJTL website, but we don’t want to give everything away. We’ll let you discover them on your own.

What’s your favorite thing about the new site? Leave a comment below, or drop me a line at We’d love to hear from you!

And again, kudos, Brian!
