One of the most popular Beckley radio stations is changing owners.

West Virginia Radio bought WJLS radio from All Access Radio this week.  The company owns more than 25 stations in Clarksburg, Charleston, and Morgantown, plus MetroNews.  West Virginia Radio says they plan to get more involved in the community.

"it's just because we know that's what has to happen.  You have to be involved in the community," says Fred Persinger of West Virginia Radio.  "We can't just sit in the building and just pump out country music or whatever the case may be as the programming goes."

WJLS will also be the first station the company owns in Southern West Virginia.
