The Package...

WLS Chicago knows the value of JAM jingles... they've used JAM for over 34 years!. But they also understand that their 5-note musical logo is an audio trademark that is instantly recognizable. For the 2010 stage of the station's development, they asked us to create custom material and also adapt some of our existing cuts to feature their famous logo. The result is a contemporary sound with a male edge, along with numerous instrumentals that work for news, promos, show intros and bumpers.

The WLS call letters originally stood for "World's Largest Store", but considering the station's reach and global internet audience it can now be considered the "World's Largest Stage". And these Stage 10 jingles are an integral part of the sound.
