History[edit]

Originally located at 94.3 FM, WFCB was called "WFCB-94.3", but to clear a move from Chillicothe to Ashville, frequencies were to be exchanged between WFCB and WKKJ, this happened in 2002. WKKJ was a sister Clear Channel station also in Chillicothe, but operating at 93.3 MHz, playing country music. After the switch, WFCB was re-imaged as "Mix 93.3", but continued to run and be staffed from Chillicothe.

When WFCB's transmitter was officially moved to Obetz on January 1, 2004, the station was flipped to "93.3 Lite FM" and the calls were changed to WLZT. The Hot AC format stayed the same throughout the transition and move to Ashville, Ohio. The positioner eventually transitioned from "93.3 Lite FM" to "93.3 WLZT" when the station switched to a more gold-based Adult Contemporary or Classic Hits format. After several musical changes, the station re-imaged as "Soft Rock 93.3" in May 2010.

On September 2, 2011, on Labor Day weekend, the station began stunting with "America's Top 500." Tuesday morning at 9 following the holiday, after playing "American Pie" by Don McLean, the station switched to classic hits as "Oldies 93.3." On September 29, 2011, the callsign was changed from WLZT to WODC. In February 2014, 80s music was added and the "Oldies 93.3" moniker was dropped.
