WJBC-FM (93.7 MHz) is a commercial FM radio station licensed to Pontiac, Illinois, in the Bloomington-Normal radio market. It is owned by Cumulus Media and broadcasts a country radio format, calling itself "93.7 Nash Icon." The transmitter is on County Road 3200 North in Weston, Illinois.[3]


The station signed on the air in July 1969 as WPOK-FM. It had 3,000 watts and broadcast on 103.1 MHz. WPOK-FM simulcast its sister station WPOK (1090 AM), now off the air.[4]

WPOK-FM changed its call sign to WJEZ in November 1984.[5] The AM station went off the air in 1998.[6]

WJEZ was a modern country station by 1989,[1] and received authorization to move from 103.1 MHz to 93.7 MHz in the early 1990s.[7]

In 2003, the WJEZ callsign was moved to sister station 98.9 at Dwight, Illinois; that station still remains WJEZ as of 2010. Replaing WJEZ on 93.7 was WTRX-FM, a classic rock station with the nickname "Thunder 93.7 WTRX". It later became "WTRX, The Oldies Channel", from the name of the Westwood One's music network format it used; the music network was purchased by Dial Global and WTRX-FM began using Dial Global's Kool Gold format, except during mornings.[citation needed]

In 2010, the station changed its call sign to WJBC-FM and began simulcasting the talk radio format on sister station WJBC (1230 AM) in Bloomington. On August 15, 2014, at 3 pm, WJBC-FM split from the simulcast and became one of the first stations to flip to the new "Nash Icon" country network as 93.7 Nash Icon.
