WZLY (91.5 FM) is a non-commercial radio station broadcasting a college radio format. Licensed to Wellesley, Massachusetts, USA, the station is staffed by students of and is owned by Wellesley College.[1][2]

The station was established on April 20, 1942, as WBS 730 AM. Early programming included radio plays, Porgy and Bess, a quiz show and the news.

In October 2014, WZLY announced that, pursuant to a vote taken during the previous year, the station's programming would move exclusively to Internet radio, with the 91.5 FM broadcast license being sold. The move was made in part because of the difficulty for a student-run radio station to comply with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations.[3]
