History of the 106.7 frequency
Coolpop WCPP replaced 106.7's country format, launching on February 19, 2004 after over 24 hours of playing "Pop Goes the Weasel" on a continuous loop. Many rumors circulated in the community to explain the loop, including rumors of a staff member taking hostages and locking him/herself in the studio and playing the loop. This proved false when the new format launched with "Hey Ya" by Outkast.
The original airstaff of Coolpop included only one live show, "Michelle & Mitchell" in the morning, while the midday and afternoon shifts were voicetracked by talent from Citadel Broadcasting Company sister station 93Q in Syracuse, New York. As of Spring, 2004, a full line up of live talent was hired. Sarah Vaughn on middays and Justin Louis on afternoons were added to the already live morning show.
Coolpop was marketed as "The World's First Coolpop Station", mixing a standard Mainstream CHR format along with some 70s and 80s "Cassette Classics" (later renamed "Coolpop Classics").
In early fall 2004, Michelle & Mitchell were replaced with Ed Coffey and Amy Warner, the long running morning show from Harrisburg's WTPA, who had been fired from WTPA earlier in the summer.
On July 1, 2005, Coolpop was quietly replaced with Adult Hits formatted "Mix 106.7".
On April 9, 2010, Mix 106.7 was flipped to "Channel 106.7", and was rebranded with an 80s and 90s Hits/Gen X format.
The Gen X format was dropped on January 20, 2012 at 1:06pm as the station became "Z Country 106.7" as it exists today. The last song on Channel 106.7 was Bye Bye Bye by *Nsync, and the first song on Z Country 106.7 was This Is Country Music by Brad Paisley.
On February 3, 2014 WZCY-FM along with 9 other Cumulus owned country music stations, made the switch to going under the Nash FM branding.
