On January 25, 2008, it was announced that WCZR is one of several Clear Channel radio stations to be sold, in order to remain under the ownership caps following the sale of Clear Channel to private investors. Until it is sold, WCZR and other stations to be sold will be placed into the Aloha Station Trust. The main station, WZZR, will remain under Clear Channel ownership.
From January to November 1987, the WCZR calls were used for 107.3 FM in the Cleveland, Ohio market. Since November 1987, that station has been known as smooth jazzWNWV.
