Who We Are
We are Radio One Communications which was born and bred in Northwest Indiana.
The company was founded by Len Ellis on November 4, 1964 as a single AM country radio station – WAKE. Since then the company expanded to include Indiana 105.5 in 1967, and X-Rock 103.9 and Z107.1 in 2001. In November of 2012 marked Ellis’s 48th year on-air.
Still family owned, with Ellis’ son Leigh at the wheel, Indiana 105 remains the longest consecutive running country station in the nation’s third largest broadcast market. Our stations reach a total of 7 counties across Northwest Indiana and some of Cook and Will Counties in Illinois. This keeps us in touch with the community and our listeners by allowing us to continue to provide them with their favorite music while updating them on the most up-to-date news, weather, traffic and more.
