Here Are All the Ways to Hear Our Station at Home
As our society deals with the realities of social distancing and greater time spent at home due to our efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 (the coronavirus), we want to provide you with resources so you may continue to listen to us for the music, news, talk, and essential community information you know us for. Even without a radio in your home, there are many ways to listen.

- Search for Lansing's Big Talker 1240 WJIM. Tap on the station logo to get the WJIM skill
- Once you've enabled the skill, just say, “Alexa, play W-J-I-M..”
