Description

WJET (1400 AM) branded as Jet Radio 1400 is a commercial radio station in Erie, Pennsylvania. It broadcasts a talk radio format and is owned by iHeartMedia. WJET's studios are located in the Boston Store building in downtown Erie while its transmitter is located at the intersection of E 18th St and Ash Street in the city of Erie. Programming is also heard on 250 watt FM translator W244DX at 96.7 MHz. WJET primarily runs conservative talk hosts from the co-owned Premiere Networks. Weekdays begin with a local news and information show, Erie Talk in the Morning, hosted by Barry Dain Steinhagen and Jim LeCorchick. The rest of the schedule is made up of nationally syndicated shows from Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Buck Sexton, Joe Pags, Coast to Coast AM with George Noory and America in the Morning. Weekends include Kim Komando, Free Talk Live, Bill Handel on the Law and Somewhere in Time with Art Bell. Under previous ownership, Rush Limbaugh was dropped in December 2008 after Premiere Networks demanded higher rights fees from WJET's owner. It was immediately restored when iHeartMedia assumed ownership in 2019. On March 27, 2019, Connoisseur Media announced that it would transfer WJET along with its sister stations to iHeartMedia in exchange for WFRE and WFMD in the Frederick, Maryland, market from the Aloha Station Trust. The sale closed on May 21, 2019.
