WAVD (97.1 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a classic hits format. Licensed to Ocean Pines, Maryland, USA, the station serves Ocean City, Maryland. The station is currently owned by Delmarva Broadcasting Company.

WQJZ featured Jones Radio Networks' Smooth Jazz programming until that feed was discontinued on September 30, 2008, as a consequence of Jones having been purchased by Triton Media Group, which also operates the Dial Global stable of 24-hour music formats. Like other former Jones affiliates, WQJZ aired programming from the Broadcast Architecture Network's smooth/urban ac format.

On April 8, 2011 WQJZ changed their format to classic hits, branded as "97.1 The Wave". On April 19, 2011 WQJZ changed their call letters to WAVD to go with "The Wave" branding.
