WCFJ 1470 AM, a time-brokered ethnic and foreign-language station licensed to south suburban Chicago Heights, ceased broadcasting Saturday, according to Charley Gross, president of Newsweb Radio. Newsweb a printer of ethnic and alternative newspapers in the United States, based in Chicago, Illinois.
“We are turning in the FCC license,” Gross said. “The station was not profitable.”
The 1,000-watt daytime station’s audience was too small to register in Nielsen Audio ratings. Owned by Newsweb Radio since 1998, the station first went on the air in 1963 as WMPP (“Working [for] More People’s Progress”) under Seaway Broadcasting Co. In 1989 Liberty Temple Full Gospel Church acquired the station and changed its call letters to WCFJ (“Winning Chicagoland for Jesus”).
