WPJP (100.1 FM) is a radio station licensed to Port Washington, Wisconsin, and licensed to Starboard Media Foundation, Inc. They have been airing Catholic-based religious programming as "Relevant Radio" since March 2003.

History

Prior to Starboard's purchase of the station, 100.1 was WGLB-FM, which aired a variety of programming over the years, including country, Top 40 and 70s hits. Most of these formats were also simulcast on their former AM sister station at 1560 AM.

For a time, WGLB-FM carried various satellite-delivered syndicated formats, but in later years were mostly live and local. The slogan was "Retro Radio". They briefly carried Don Imus's syndicated morning talk radio show in the late 1990s. The stations languished at the bottom of the Milwaukee area ratings due to its location and limited signal, which did not penetrate the southern half of Milwaukee County.

WGLB was owned by Joel Kinlow until he sold the station to Starboard. WGLB-FM signed off the air on May 21, 2003 and following a station upgrade, WPJP officially debuted on August 22, 2003. Kinlow presently owns WGLB-AM, which airs a gospel music format.

WPJP airs much of the national content of Relevant Radio, but also airs some local programming, including Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki's Sunday Mass, and Marquette Golden Eagles men's basketball.

A fictitious station called WPJP was mentioned numerous times on "The Larry Sanders Show" s04e14. In that episode Larry hired a (TV) prop guy who had previously worked props at WPJP.
