PLYMOUTH — Galaxie Broadcasting is changing the call letters for radio station 1420 AM WJUB The Breeze to WGXI, effective immediately.
The change ushers in the third set of call letters in the station’s storied 64-year history. In 1954, the radio station signed on as WPLY, and in 1991 Jubilation Ministries changed the call letters to WJUB.
Galaxie Broadcasting’s switch to the call letters WGXI has been officially granted by the Federal Communications Commission.
The change to the WGXI call letters is part of a series of moves planned by new station owners David Hendrickson and Stuart Muck of Galaxie Broadcasting. Hendrickson and Muck had intended to bring back the original WPLY call letters, but they are currently assigned to another radio station in Roanoke, Va.
“The WGXI call letters really help to mark the start of the station’s new ownership,” Hendrickson said.
Galaxie Broadcasting’s purchase of the radio station became official on December 28, 2017.
The station will continue to be known as 1420 AM The Breeze with an Adult Standards music format, CBS Radio News and affiliations with Marquette Golden Eagles men’s college basketball and Plymouth Panthers high school football.
