WEZW (Easy 93.1 FM) is an FM radio station based in Wildwood Crest, New Jersey and serving the Ocean City, Cape May and Atlantic City markets. Its studios are located at the Bayport One complex in West Atlantic City, and its transmitter is located in Wildwood, New Jersey. The station is owned by Equity Communications, LP and plays an easy listening/soft AC format 10 months of the year, flipping to a Christmas music format for November and December.
93.1 was granted the WDOX calls on May 17, 1990 (at the time, standing for original CP holder David Oxenford). The station went on the air in November 1993 with an easy listening format, using the slogan "The Docks." This ultimately lasted for only 6 months and then in May 1994 became an alternative rock station.
On October 16, 2003 the station changed its call sign to WDTH, following its sale from Margate Communications to Equity Communications in March, 2002.
On September 15, 2006, the call letters were changed to the current WEZW. Until 2004 the WEZW calls were on WJZN, an adult standards station in Augusta, Maine. WEZW were also the former calls of what is now top 40 station WXSS in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, when that station played beautiful music in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
In late October 2009, WEZW ended its simulcast of WTTH and started a Christmas music format. The format ended on December 28 of that year, and the station became Easy 93.1, airing a Soft AC format. In 2010, the station was added to the Philadelphia Phillies Radio Network.
On Saturdays, the station simulcasts the popular "Bob Pantano Saturday Night Dance Party" from Philadelphia's 98.1 WOGL.
