History[edit]

WZLK signed on the air in August 1992 under the ownership of Kenneth and Lonnie Osborne. The first songs to play were that of a classic country nature blended with Kentucky bluegrass. The station was co-owned with WLSI-AM in Pikeville, KY. WZLK became a second country outlet in Pike County. FCC.GOV

The ownership changed in 2003 when WZLK and WLSI were purchased by Eastern Kentucky Broadcasting. FCC.GOV

In March 2005, East Kentucky broadcasting changed the format of WZLK to a hybrid CHR/Rock format, giving Pike County a local outlet for Top 40 and Rock music. The first song played on Z-Rock, in March 2005, was "Self Esteem" by The Offspring.

On September 2, 2015, WZLK flipped to a pure Top 40 format.
