About Us

Taking you to the next level

The extraordinary power of television


The average American watches more than five hours of TV a day and the average American household has two televisions!


TV is the most powerful and influential medium that can penetrate any given market. It is the only medium available that can spread a message to the masses, in the shortest amount of time, with the least amount of effort, making it the most effective form of advertising available.


WJYS The Way is uniquely poised and positioned to take your business, program, ministry or message to the next level in a Way that no other TV station in Chicago can match.


We have been the catalyst to the explosive growth and expansion for many local and national organizations who have tapped into the tremendous possibilities offered by advertising in the nation’s third largest metropolitan market, Chicago, Illinois.


If you are ready to go to the next level and beyond, then the professionals at WJYS The Way are ready to take you there. We have the expertise, the experience, and all the power you need to take you where you have never been before.
