WLZR (1560 AM) is a radio station broadcasting to the Melbourne-Titusville-Cocoa, Florida area. It is under ownership of Cumulus Media.[1] Then known as WINT, in October 2008, the station switched from an oldies format to an ESPN all-sports format. On February 25, 2011, WINT went silent. On December 13, 2014 WLZR returned to the air, simulcasting sports-formatted WSJZ 95.9 FM. On April 1, 2015 WLZR split from its simulcast with WSJZ (which switched an active rock format) and rebranded as "Sports Radio 1560 The Fan."
