In the late 70s, 100.1 in Port Charlotte, FL had the call letters WEEJ and played an all disco format and throughout most of the 1980s an adult contemporary format until switching formats various times throughout the 1990s.
On 3/29/09 at midnight WZJZ began to play the same portion of the song "I Like To Move It" by Reel 2 Real repeatedly in preparation for a format change. The new station was slated to be called Move 100.1. On March 30, 2009 WZJZ flipped to a very upbeat-type Rhythmic Adult Contemporary direction and adopted the "Z100" moniker (its logo patterned after its Top 40 sister station in Portland, Oregon and partially in another sister station in New York, New York).
On July 25, 2011, after a weekend of stunting, WZJZ flipped to Top 40/CHR, billing themselves as Y100. The station's format and logo is patterned after its sister station in nearby Miami, WHYI, but is customized for Southwest Floridians. The flip to Top 40 now gives Clear Channel's Fort Myers cluster two Top 40s, as they also own Rhythmic Top 40 WBTT. In 2013, Y100 once again switched their logo to match their sister station, but the difference of their logo is they have splatters, but in Y100, it is clear, pure blue logo and removed the orange part of the "100" part of their logo.
