WZVN (107.1 FM) is an American radio station broadcasting an adult contemporary music format. Licensed to Lowell, Indiana, USA, it serves Northwest Indiana and Chicago's south suburbs. The station is currently owned by Radio One Communications and features programing from Jones Radio Network. The format was shifted to adult contemporary from hot adult contemporary in August 2011 after rival WCFS-FM dropped it for all-news.
When WZVN first began broadcasting in 1972, the call letters were WLCL (which stood for Lowell and Cedar Lake); the original owner, William J. Dunn, planned a radio station of local interest serving the two towns. The call letters were changed to WZVN in 1981 when the station was purchased by White Advertising; the format was changed to a Top 40 format under the new call letters.
The current owner, Radio One Communications, which was founded by Leonard J. Ellis, has a 45 years history, according to their website.
