Juniata County Radio (JCR) is about to get a new look. The site has undergone numerous changes with many more planned in the coming weeks.
"The change is long overdue," said Seth Dowling, Site Designer/Webmaster for Juniata County Radio. "We've streamlined the best parts of the old site and will be adding in some much-needed new features."
While not all the changes will be functional by this Saturday's 2023-24 season opener football game with Troy, listeners should have no issues enjoying the game.
Juniata County Radio launched in 2015 when local radio stations Country 92.5 WJUN and Wheels 106.1 were sold to a large media group, eliminating local radio from the county. JCR brings local and statewide news, up-to-the minute weather from trusted meteorologists and the Penn State Campus Weather Service and a 24/7 oldies/classic rock music channel.
"Sports has been the heart of Juniata County Radio," said Sports Director Brad Strawser. "We bring coverage of both EJ and Juniata Sports, as well as local racing information." Strawser, who is also announcer and promotional team member at Port Royal Speedway, also hosts Racing Roundup, a weekly news and informational team for local and national racing--another throwback to WJUN.
Many churches provide original programming to Juniata County Radio. The Sunday Morning Praise and Worship Block features programs from: Stony Run Mission, Richfield Life Ministries, Locust Run Global Methodist, Beavertown God's Missionary, Heavenbound Church, as the Villiage Chapel Hour, a program that debuted in 1955 on WJUN.
