WZTK (105.7 FM) is an American radio station broadcasting a News-Talk format. The station is licensed to the city of Alpena, Michigan. The station is currently owned by Midwestern Broadcasting Company.
The station's lineage originated in November 1946 when a full-service local radio station, WATZ, sign on the air and was, for many years, the only broadcaster in Alpena. In the late 1960s, WATZ-FM signed on as an adult contemporary station at 93.5 FM. By this time, the format of WATZ AM was primarily country. In 1988, the format of WATZ-FM was changed to country and the signal moved to 99.3 so the station could boost its power from 3,000 to 50,000 watts. For the next several years, WATZ-FM and WATZ AM simulcasted the same programming. In the mid-90s, WATZ AM was broken off from WATZ-FM and given its current news/talk format.
In June 2014, the talk format moved to a new station, WZTK, at 105.7 FM, with the 1450 AM frequency concurrently deactivated. WZTK is locally owned and operated by the same company that founded WATZ in 1946.
