WRLZ (1270 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a Spanish Christian Contemporary music format. Licensed to Eatonville, Florida, USA, it serves the Orlando area. The station is currently owned by Radio Luz, Inc.
The station signed on the air as WHIY in 1957 using the slogan "Radio Hi Fi". In 1962, it transitioned to a country music format. In 1978, the station switched callsigns to WORL and adopted an adult contemporary music format. By 1986, WORL 1270 was known as "Power Hits ORL". In 1987, the station dropped AC for R&B. In late 1988, with FM on the rise the station dropped music altogether and began a business news format as WBZS. This lasted about one year before a switch to Spanish language programming. This programming continued through the 1991 callsign change to WHBS until the station went dark in 1995. In 1996, it was revived under new ownership as WRLZ.
