What does WILS mean?
- WILS is a radio station located in Lansing, Michigan broadcasting a news-talk format. Until October 2006, WILS aired ABC Radio's satellite-delivered adult standards/MOR music package known as "Timeless Classics". The station had had this format since the early 1990s and was quite successful in the ratings with it. The Timeless Favorites format moved to sister WXLA 1180 AM after that station was purchased by MacDonald Broadcasting; WILS and WXLA essentially simulcast each other with separate IDs and imaging until WILS changed to its current "More Compelling Talk Radio" format. On January 25, 2008, WILS turned on their new Windsor Township transmitter and became the most powerful AM station in Lansing. The new daytime signal covers all of mid-Michigan including Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Mt. Pleasant, and Jackson, and can be heard as far south as Bryan, Ohio. The new night power and footprint provides improved coverage in the Lansing area. The local programming focuses on local issues and personalities, including business, culture/entertainment, sports, education and politics/government. Politically the programs match the community's generally progressive electoral history.
