WXZZ (103.3 FM, "Z Rock 103.3") is a Cumulus Media-owned FM active rock radio station based in Lexington, Kentucky.

WXZZ features a popular[citation needed] morning show in Twitch & the Z Rock Morning Show. Also, in the afternoons, Johnny Maze does the feature "Thumbs Up or the Finger" where he plays a brand new song from a national act for listeners to call in and give their opinions. During the 5 pm hour, it's the All Request Drive at 5. In addition, WXZZ airs two weekly syndicated programs: House of Hair with Dee Snider on Saturday nights, and "Out of Order" with Jed the Fish on Sunday mornings.

Cumulus uses the Z Rock name as a moniker for WXZZ, as a way to keep the trademark active following the closure of the satellite network of the same name in 1996.[1]
