About Us


WLNL has been in operation as a Christian radio station in New York's Central Southern Tier since January of 1988. WLNL is a "daytimer" station operating according to FCC regulations, meaning we are on the air from dawn to dusk (our broadcast day is longer in the summer and shorter in the winter). Broadcasting at 5,000 watts at peak power on clear channel AM 1000 we are able to our programming over radio waves for about 60 miles is all directions.


The station is operated by those who appreciate the opportunity to affect our local area with the timeless truths of God's Word. Over the years a variety of people from the community have participated in this operation.

Jesse Pierce was practically raised at WLNL. As a teenager and young man, Jes put in untold hours as an announcer. Never one to sit around, he was always doing more than his share. Jesse, now a happily married man (to Lianne), stepped into the General Manager position in the autumn of 2008. In doing so, he followed in the steps of many others who served the Lord and this community with all their hearts. There are many challenges in operating a not-for-profit AM radio station in Upstate New York. Never is that more true than when the local and national economy are in the condition they are today. However, with diligence and dedication, Jesse is leading the station through to what is certain to be a blessed future.


WLNL’s mission is to use its media power, broadcast facilities, personnel and community influence serve the community at large with a special emphasis on the Christian community.
