WJLI (98.3 FM, "Jelli 98.3") is a radio station broadcasting a classic rock format.[1] Licensed to Metropolis, Illinois, USA, the station is currently owned by Sun Media, Inc., also known as Stratemeyer Media and is located inside Kentucky Oaks Mall in Paducah, KY.


The station was assigned the call sign WRIK on April 6, 1982. On October 6, 1987, the station changed its call sign to WRIK-FM. The station started broadcasting from the old Massac Theatre building on 5th street in Metropolis, Illinois. WRIK initially was a "class A" station with a signal covering Paducah, Kentucky and Metropolis, Illinois primarily. WRIK was extended a construction permit to move its transmitter location to the south and expand its signal coverage with a "class C1" license in the early 1990s. The station currently serves portions of Southern Illinois, Western Kentucky, Southeast Missouri and West Tennessee from a tower located in Graves County, Kentucky near the community of Golo.[2]

On December 26, 2012, WRIK-FM rebranded as Jelli 98.3, keeping its Hot AC format, and changed its call sign to the current WJLI, and added 6 hours of user-controlled content per day, from 6PM-12M 7 days a week.[3]

On November 6, 2013 WJLI changed their format to classic rock (keeping the "Jelli 98.3" branding), filling the classic rock void in the Paducah KY market after WQQR 94.7 FM began stunting with Christmas music.[4]
