History[edit]

The station was first granted the WVIL call sign on November 8, 1988. Calls were then changed to WLQE on February 1, 1990 and signed on soon afterwards with a country format as "Lucky 99." On March 2, 1992, calls were changed to WFNN and the format shifted over to Hot AC (via satellite) as "Fun 98.7." On January 19, 1998, the format evolved into classic rock and on March 1, 1998, changed calls to WWZK. In February 2001, a switch occurred between 98.7 and 94.3 in Avalon with 94.3's calls and format moving to 98.7. The WCZT calls became effective on March 2, 2001. In January 2011, WCZT segued to a Hot Adult Contemporary format.
