History[edit]

The station was founded on November 2, 1990 as W22AX by Juan Papotito Rosario (currently serves as owner of WOLA 1380 AM & Buena TV) and Fernando Jimenez (stockholder of Borinquen Broadcasting). W22AX is the first low power television station founded in Puerto Rico. The station is currently owned by JB Media Group, managed by Jose Berrios. First known as "Canal 22", in 1995 it was known as "Telecentro". Some famous Puerto Rican news reporters worked at W22AX in the early 1990s, such as Mario Vega (later at NotiUno, now deceased), Jose Raul Arriaga (later at WAPA (AM), Dando Candela in WKAQ-TV and currently owns Red Informativa de Puerto Rico , a Radio News Agency), Jose Santiago (Public affairs Mun of Cidra and WAPA-TV), Jesus Rodriguez García (later at WSKN, currently owns Radio Acromatica, a web station), Jose R. Gomez (El Pueblo Quiere Saber), Braulio Rodriguez (Musa Media Group), Jorge Antares (actor), Angel Irizarry and Nestor Rodriguez (formerly in WKUM AM 1470). W22AX then changed its call letters to WXWZ-LP in 2000, and then WXWZ-LD in 2011 when the station switched to digital.
