WBEJ - Established, Invested, Informs and Entertains

As Elizabethton/Carter County, Tennessee's oldest radio station, WBEJ's long established and steady listening audience has enabled the station to remain one of the best media buys in the Northeast Tennessee market.

Since July, 1946 WBEJ has provided its listeners with a mix of local and regional news and information, with the music most preferred by the Carter County and surrounding area radio listeners. As a result, WBEJ has maintained its veteran listeners, yet also attracts younger audiences by adapting programming adjustments in conjunction with changing popular trends in the radio listening market. Because country music has been the most popular format in the Northeast Tennessee area including Carter County for over a decade, WBEJ uses a contemporary country music and local/regional information programming mix to maintain and expand its audience base.

To enhance our programming and coverage area, WBEJ added the FM 107.9 FM frequency in 2012.  This provides a clean stereo signal for our listeners and advertisers.  

WBEJ utilizes the service of World Wide News at the top of each hour 24 hours a day and adds local news and weather to World Wide News in the morning and afternoon drive times to enhance its appeal to area listeners.

WBEJ has a prospective 59,000 listeners in Carter County, and serves the entire TRI-CITIES Market Area with its broadcast signal covering a population numbered in the hundreds of thousands.

Further enhancement of WBEJ's programming and listener appeal is achieved with exclusive broadcasts of local high school football and basketball games and events of local interest.

1:00 A.M. - 6:00 A.M with Rich Creeger:
I've been involved in Country music since I was hired to be a bar back in the early 80's at the World Famous Gilley's nightclub in Pasadena, Texas during the height of the Urban Cowboy craze. Although Country music has gone through many variations since then it has always been the first preset on my radio because it still has the foundation of real stories told by real people about real life. Some of my favorite current artists are Chris Young, Brantley Gilbert and Jana Kramer. Some of my all-time favorites are Willie Nelson, George Jones and Reba. My wife Fran and I are a blended family of 5 kids, 2 dogs and a cat and when her and I get some free time (ha ha what's that?) we usually point the car toward the beach, set up camp and just stare at it.
