WLCD FM 98.7

WLCD is a Low-Powered FM Radio Station operated on the campus of Lane College, a historically black college and university in Jackson, Tennessee. The station's current formats are rhythm & blues, classic soul, jazz, gospel, and community programming.

More than 30 years ago Lane College alumnus and Jackson businessman James E. Wolfe helped start the college's first radio station, which continued to thrive until the station went off the air in the mid 1980's. In December of 2004, Wolfe returned to Lane to announce, along with former President Wesley Cornelius McClure that the ownership of WJKR- FM 98.7, owned by West Tennessee Cultural Heritage Association, Inc., of which Wolfe is President, had been transferred to the College.

In July of 2005, the College acquired the FCC license to operate its own radio station, WLCD-FM. Lane is one of only two private colleges or universities in West Tennessee with its own radio station.

WLCD-FM is housed in the Mass Communication Building, Shy Hall, on the Lane College campus.
