WNPZ (1580 AM) was a radio station serving the Knoxville Metropolitan Area with an Urban Adult Contemporary/Gospel music format. The station was under ownership of Metropolitan Management Corporation of Tennessee.

WNPZ's license was canceled on June 20, 2017 for not paying debts it owed to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which prevented the renewal of the station's license.[2]

On July 24, 2017 WNPZ filed a Petition for Reconsideration.[3]
