WHIZ-FM (92.7 FM) — Z92 — is a radio station broadcasting a Top 40 format. Licensed to South Zanesville, Ohio, United States. The station is owned by Southeastern Ohio Broadcasting Systems (WHIZ Media Group).
WHIZ-FM was previously broadcast on 102.5 FM. On October 17, 2008, the WHIZ Media Group announced the purchase of WCVZ (92.7), allowing 102.5 FM to move out of the Zanesville area.
Under a local marketing agreement, WCVZ then simulcast WHIZ-FM's adult contemporary music format in preparation for this move until December 7, 2008, when WCVZ assumed WHIZ-FM's identity as "Z92," and WHIZ-FM became "Highway 102," featuring an automated country music format.
Former owner Christian Voice of Central Ohio continues to serve the Zanesville area on newly acquired WZNP (89.3 FM) licensed to Newark, Ohio, a part of the company's "Promise Network". The WCVZ calls remained with WHIZ Media Group, and were used on 102.5 FM until December 23, 2010, when local marketing agreement operator Fun With Radio, LLC's WWCD calls were moved to the frequency.

Some of your Favorite WHIZ Radio Stations are making a change. 102.5 FM, known as Highway 102, is moving to Baltimore, Ohio and will become WCVZ. The current WCVZ signal, known as 92.7, will revert to WHIZ FM here in Zanesville... It will open up access to hundreds of thousands of listeners west of Zanesville and all around the Columbus market. Littick says where a lot of impact will be felt is the northwest and west side of Columbus. He says starting today (Wednesday) that area will have a new radio station. Littick says the move will also be a big win for advertisers who will have access to over 1.4 million potential listeners in the new signal area in an affordable, economical way.
