WEZS traces its origins to New Hampshire's first broadcast radio station, WKAV, an experimental station run by a local radio club, which went on the air in 1922 but went dark about a decade later after a myriad of financial problems. In 1934, the station was reborn as WLNH at 1310 kHz on the AM dial, moving to 1340 in 1941 and to the current 1350 frequency in 1954. The station has also featured the calls WKZU and WMRS (1986–1987) and returned to WLNH (1987–1994) before becoming WEZS in June 1994.
As WEZS, the station initially featured a beautiful music/easy listening format which was eventually modified to smooth jazz. WEZS was a rare AM station to play smooth jazz, along with WCIN in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The station's format changed in March 2008 to "Good Times and Great Oldies", then in December 2012 to full-time news and talk. The programming includes syndicated shows hosted by Michael Savage, Dennis Miller, Dave Ramsey, and Roger Hedgecock; hourly news by Fox News Radio; and programming produced locally: Newsday with Allan Harrison, Niel Young and The Advocates, The Tom Brown Show, and The Tavern, featuring former U.S. Senator Bob Smith.
